Repeat for the rest.
Assembling the Paper Poinsettia & Holly
Place the holly pieces back to back (see reference pictures below).
Insert the pieces along the center slits to form the 3D holly shape. Glue the tops and bottom edges in place to help hold secure.
Fold the poinsettia pieces along the score lines.
Stack the poinsettia pieces with the largest at the bottom, rotating the direction of each petal piece and gluing together each layer at the center. Glue the small centerpiece in the middle.
For the poinsettia leaves, fold the tab and apply a bit of glue to the tab. Align the adjacent edges tucking the tab towards the back to form leaf shape.

Glue the poinsettia leaves to one of the lids.
