One of my favorite things about spending Christmas in Hawaii is seeing all the lovely poinsettia decorations!
We see these beautiful, tropical flowers all over the islands and even incorporated into some pretty cute hula costumes!

DIY Poinsettia Tutorial
Select red, green and yellow colored cardstock papers. Trace the flower patterns on the red paper, the small round shapes on the yellow paper and the leaf pattern on the green paper. Cut out the traced patterns nicely.
Use a blunt craft-knife or x-acto knife to trace half-cut lines from the tip of the petals towards the center of the flower pattern. Trace lines along the middle of the leaf pattern as well.
Create neat creased lines along the half-cut lines of the flower and the leaf patterns.
Place and glue the small flower pattern in the middle of the big flower pattern.
Stick the yellow round paper cutouts in the center of the small flower pattern.
Stick the leaf pattern under the crafted flower. You can add more leaves if you want to.
