DIY CUPCAKE LINER FLOWERS

Flatten five cupcake liners for each corsage, and roll each into a small ball to wrinkle. This gives the layers dimension. The kids just thought it was fun and had a contest to see who could make the smallest ball.

Partially unfold each cupcake liner, making them different sizes. Layer them largest to smallest. (You can also work with them after they’re stitched together to create the different layers. Just let the kids scrunch each layer a bit more.)

Add a quick stitch using a needle and string or crochet thread through all layers, to keep them in place. I tied the knot in the back.

CREATE FINGERPRINT BUGS

I like to use stamp ink, because the fingerprints show up better than with paint. I drew a variety of bugs first, and let the kids copy my samples. Let your kids create multiple bugs, then choose their favorite. Ed Emberly’s fingerprint art books are awesome! This one has a whole page on bugs.

Cupcake Liner Flower Craft for kids - So Cute!!

I stuck with a simple bee, lady bug and butterfly. We also tried a worm, but the girls said no mom would want a worm for Mother’s Day. Maybe they’re right. 😉

ASSEMBLE CORSAGE

Punch out each bug using a 1 ½” circle punch, and adhere to center of flower with hot glue. (Flip the circle punch over to center bug.)

Turn the flower over, and adhere another 1 ½” circle to the back of the flower. Adhere a bar pin with a nice big glob of hot glue so it’ll really stick. Make sure the bar pin lines up with the direction of the bug on the front.

OPTION #2

My daughter, Kate, has three girls, and although wearing multiple corsages at once would certainly be eye-catching (wink), displaying all the flowers together in a vase might be more practical. You could also attach a stem and leaves after mom has worn her corsage, and it quickly becomes a display for all year.

Simply adhere cupcake liner flowers to a straw stem and add ribbon for the leaves using a square knot (right over left, left over right). I used a dab of hot glue on the ribbon, so it would stay in place on the straw.
