How to make Paper Muffin Cup Flowers

Fold four paper baking cups into half and lay two out flat.

Punch a hole 1/4 inch from the edge on the four folded papers.

Fold the other two papers in half and punch off the edge to make a hole in the center of the baking cup (like paper on left side), open back up.

Place four folded papers onto sucker stick, overlapping 1/4 of the baking cup each time a paper is added. Then place two open papers.

How to make masking tape leaves

Lay out two pieces of green masking tape about 7 inches long, sticky side facing up.  Place a piece of wire in the center of one piece.

Put sticky sides together with wire sandwiched in the middle.

Cut a leaf shape at each end with 1 inch trimmed in the middle.

Twist leaves underneath paper baking cups.

So cute!

Fold the four center papers in 1/4 to make a pie shape for a different look.

Arrange papers on sucker stick for another beautiful flower.

Fold mini muffin cup papers either way…

for mini flowers.

It is easy to write to and from on the masking tape leaves. In no time at all you can have a whole bouquet of valentines.



There are loads of pretty paper baking cups in my shop.
