Supplies for these Paper Flowers

Cupcake Wrappers – I used Martha Stewart wrappers with a scalloped edge.

Green Pipe Cleaners – if you want to make a fancy cupcake liner flower then you can use flower stems from the floral sections of your local craft store. If you use flower stems, then you might consider getting floral tape, and silk leaves

Mini Cupcake Wrappers – The mini cupcake liner will be the center of the flower. It is fun to use a vibrant color for the middle cupcake liner as a stark contrast to the outside liners

Regular-Sized Cupcake Wrappers – You can use any color of cupcake liner, but I used a variety of pinks and reds

Equipment Needed

Hole Punch – You’ll use this to punch a hole in the cupcake liners and secure them together with your pipe cleaner

How to Make Paper Flowers out of Cupcake Liners

Step One

  • Stack a mini cupcake wrapper and two regular-sized wrappers together, with the mini wrapper in the center.
