Easy Paper Serviette Poinsettias

These pretty poinsettias are so easy to make from red paper serviettes or napkins.

I'm over at The Pinning Mama again today with a simple tutorial showing how to make pretty poinsettias from paper serviettes. I have no idea why I always seem to choose a project to share on The Pinning Mama which involves a transatlantic translation issue! Serviettes or Napkins - what do you call them where you are? I've always called them serviettes, I think a napkin is a very fancy damask thing you'd find in an episode of Downton Abbey! I gather though that, for all my US friends, these paper party thingumajigs are known as napkins.
Luckily the poinsettias are easier to make than the vocabulary is to work out.

    1. What a lovely idea Zografia, you could make little ones to scatter on the table, or fill a shallow bowl with them.

  10. They're so pretty and great for the Christmas table! I always make mine into origami waterlilies, but that is much less festive! #creativemonday

    1. I remember the water lily thing, isn't that where you do some folds them pop it upside down on a glass and pull the petals down into shape? This is easier, more cutting and sticking then origami!
