Using FOUR cupcake liners at a time, fold and cut them following the pictorial above. You’re basically just folding the liners in half, and then in half again to create a small fan. Next, cut patterns on the long, round edge like you would a paper snowflake. You can do this however you’d like with curvy or straight lines (I did a variety of both).

You’ll also want to cut a small chunk off the pointy end to create a hole large enough to allow them to easily slide onto your sticks.

  • I recommend cutting no more than FOUR cupcake liners at a time because anything more than that is difficult to cut. However, this is the minimum you’ll need to create a full, nice-looking flower.
  • Get creative and try mixing different colors and patterns of cupcake liners into a single flower.
  • I chose sticks from my yard that had several end points, so some of my sticks had 2 or 3 flowers attached to each one. I think this made for a more realistic looking bouquet! It also looks attractive to use sticks in a variety of lengths with irregular curves.
  • You could optionally add embellishments to these flowers such as glitter or ribbon, or even dab on some craft paint for added texture and color.
  • After making this project, I was thinking it would have been nice if I had added some leafy green colored cupcake liners to the mix. You could pinch them together and randomly glue them along the sticks to construct something that resembles foliage.
  • In addition to home decor, these paper flowers would be beautiful as a party decoration displayed as a centerpiece for just about any occasion. Simply choose colors that are fitting to the holiday or party theme.
