Free Christmas paper piecing patterns make it inexpensive and easy to make embellishments for holiday scrapbook pages and greeting cards. The poinsettia is a classic Christmastime flower. This gorgeous flower only has two parts. The leaves and petals are the same shape. The dots in the center can be punched with a circle punch - quick and easy.
To begin, save and print the pattern from this gallery. Cut out the leaf pattern and trace it on both green and red cardstock. Cut out petals and leaves. Use a black pen or colored pencil to draw in veins and trace the edges of both the petals and leaves. Before assembling the pieces, fold the petals in half to give them some dimension.
