How to Make Baking Cup Flowers
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 the 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
You are going to be shocked at how realistic these leave look and you only use masking tape and wire.
- 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! What a fun little project that even kids can do!
Mini Paper Muffin Cup Flowers
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.
Mini muffin cup papers can be folded 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 flowers.
