How to make Cake Case Daffodils 36



These Cake Case Flowers sit on a shelf above my desk and bring me so much joy. I love real flowers, I really do, but there is nothing that makes me smile more than the handmade ones that grace my desk which have over time been made by my boys.  They are often so simple to make, but they last forever and these cake case daffodils are so simple to make, but look amazing.  Even better this is a mess-free craft.

Instructions to make paper flowers

Cupcake cases make brilliant flower petals and we love using them for more than just baking, they are also perfect for making party containers too. Use a selection of sizes for cupcakes, buns and muffins.

Start by taking the largest cake case in the colour of your choice and cutting the outside of the cases to resemble petals.    My boys choose orange and yellow as they are at the age when they want their end result to look similar to the real thing.

I love using double sided tape with kids as it is great for fine motor skills, it can be hard to peel the backing off, but that teaches patience and practice makes perfect.  It is often better to add the tape to everything for younger children, so they can just enjoy the sticking!

To make it easier for little fingers, stick the to the bottom of items, trust me it is easier to peel it off the bottom of a cake case then the inside!

Then the fun begins and you can start putting together the cases to resemble daffodil heads.  Once they are at the stage above then you stick the paper straws to the rear as stems.
