Hello there, this is Lia from liagriffith.com. I am happy to be here on Skip to My Lou, to share a very fun project you and your kids can make for a memorable teacher’s appreciation gift. One of my favorite things to make is paper flowers. I use all kinds of different papers for different blooms and the easiest is paper from cupcake liners. I made these flowers with red polka dot liners for the blooms and green polka dot liners for the leaves that I found at my local craft store. The stems of this adorable little flower are made from pencils covered with pretty green washi tape. How perfect is that! You can follow the tutorial at the end of this post that gives you step-by-step instructions on making this little gift. If you like the chalkboard style gift tags I used in these photos, they are available on my blog.

  1. Love this! Where can I print those adorable tags? I clicked the link to your blog, but it took me to a main page, not a page to download the tags.

  2. These are about some of the best flowers I’ve seen made out of cupcake liners. I love how you cut the heart shape out of the liners to make them look even more like flowers.

  3. I love these!! I love that I get so many great business ideas on here. Its fun to see the different ways you can incorporate someones idea. For me I’d love to make purple ones and say thank you for helping my business bloom! Super cute.

  4. How Cute!!! Your teachers will love this wonderful idea! I know it makes the students feel so special when their Mommy or Daddy are able to take a little time and show how much teachers are appreciated. Thanks for sharing this with us!!!!
