Morning everyone and welcome to my Tutorial for 
Today I have a Christmas Card Tutorial for you including how to make my poinsettia flowers from paper foam, otherwise know as Foamiran. Plus a bonus, a video!

YOU WILL NEED

Take a warm iron and BBQ stick and heat up until flower curls

 It should look like this
 Now start to squish all the flowers between your fingers and roll until they look like the above
 Now take a piece of wire and a few stamens. Fold stamens in half, thread through the wire, make a hole in the flowers and thread through each flower one layer at a time. Use two or three layers whichever you like the best
