Can you believe it!  It's only one month until Christmas!  The end of the 2015 Holiday Catalogue is almost upon us too.  Stampin' Up! have released the Retiring List for the Holiday Catalogue, so check it out and make sure you have everything for this Christmas season.

One of my favourites from this year's Holiday Catalogue is the Festive Flower Builder Punch and the coordinating Reason for the Season stamp set.  For the November workshops we made a gorgeous Square Pillow Box featuring a Poinsettia we created using the Festive Flower Builder Punch...

I have put together a pictorial on how to create the Poinsettia for the front of this Christmas box.  Here's goes...

Pictorial:  Poinsettia with the Festive Flower Builder Punch

The punching, stamping and folding of the petals and leaves take a little time (but worth the effort).  Putting the Poinsettia together is really simple, it has a lot of wow-factor and everyone loves it!
