Make a Paper Poinsettia From a Cocktail Napkin

Cocktail Napkin Poinsettia DIY Last Christmas, a designer friend of mine introduced me to making the paper poinsettia from a cocktail napkin. I loved this idea, and after a few tweaks and a glitter addition, I love it even more. I now call it my 30 second gift topper. I have made a step-by-step tutorial below and promise after a few tries, you will have it down to 30 seconds too. This would be very pretty in white or even gold or silver napkins. Give that a try! Cheers! ~ Lia
