DIY Of The Week: Springtime Cupcake Liner Flowers
Supplies:1 regular cupcake liner 1 mini cupcake liner 1 green popsicle stick 1 large yellow sticker rhinestone crafter’s tape green construction paper scissors
- Start by choosing your colours – one large cupcake liner and one mini cupcake liner. Then flatten them out a little bit so they are easier to fold. They don’t need to be completely flat, but you’ll want to stretch and flatten them just a little bit to make them easier to work with.
- Fold the cupcake liner in half. Then fold it in half again, again and again. You’ll be folding the cupcake liner in half FOUR times, so you end up with eight petals.
- Using a good pair of scissors, carefully cut a curve into the cupcake liner. I recommend starting your cut on the folded edge.
- Make sure you cut the curve low enough to give you distinct petal shapes when you open it up. If you didn’t cut it low enough, just fold it back up and cut again.
- Then fold the mini cupcake liner the same way (fold four times) and cut the curve into it as well.
- Gently shape the cupcake liners so the bright and bold colour is facing forward and the white side is facing the back. Attach the yellow cupcake liner to the pink cupcake liner with using a bit of crafter’s tape..
- Attach a sticker rhinestone to the middle of the flower. Fold a piece of construction paper in by about 1.5 inches. Then cut out two leaf shapes on the fold.
- Use crafter’s tape to attach the leaves to the back of the popsicle stick and then attach the popsicle stick to the back of the flower.
- Flip it over and your simple cupcake liner flower is done!
