These DIY Cupcake liners (or cake case) flowers are such a simple craft. I love a DIY flower craft, they are so simple and fun to make with kids and just like nature herself, every flower can be unique and beautiful. They make a great gift – just imagine a bouquet of these paper flowers on Mother’s Day or a wall filled with them in the classroom.

How to make Cupcake Liner Flowers

  • Gather all the supplies needed. You can use hot glue with older children and glue dots are great as there is no waiting for the glue to dry too, but tacky glue or PVA for younger kids is fine.
  • Flatten out the larger-size cupcake liner then fold it in half, then fold it in half again and again.
  • Starting from the bottom of the folded cupcake liner use scissors to cut out a curve which will make the petal shape.
  • Flatten the smaller cupcake liner and repeat the above steps to make the centre of the layered flower.
  • Repeat until all the cupcake liners are cut into flower petals.
  • Place a dollop of glue in the center of the large cupcake liner then add the mini cupcake liner on top. Press and hold for a moment to secure.
  • Add another dollop of glue to the middle of the mini cupcake liner and place the button. Press and hold for a moment to secure. Repeat with all the flowers. Let the flowers dry for a few minutes.

Add another drop of glue and pop a button in the center of the flower.

  • While the flowers are drying fold the green construction paper or green paper and cut out a teardrop shape for two leaves.
  • You can use different coloured paper as we have here.
  • Add some glue to the back of the popsicle sticks, and stick on the leaves. Hold for a moment to secure. Let the leaves to dry for a few minutes.
  • If you don’t have green ice lolly sticks or craft stick then you can colour them in with a green marker.
  • Flip the popsicle stick over and add glue to the top of the popsicle stick to attach the cupcake liner flowers.
  • Give the flowers a few more minutes to allow all the glue to dry completely.
