Muffin Tin Mom has captured our hearts with this tutorial that turns everyday cupcake liners into adorable flowers. We just can't get enough of paper flowers, and these are right on par with that idea. She has TONS of other tutorials, so check it out!
After school when she came home, she wanted to make one of her very own folded cupcake liner flower. So, we did. I was very careful to explain how hot glue works. It was definitely a moment I will never forget as I remember the first time I used a hot glue gun with my mom. We worked together to create her flower, folding the muffin liners around a paper circle and adding a button.
Proud of her work.
I attached an alligator clip to the back using hot glue, so she could put it in her hair.
If there was a bonus, it would be that the pack of muffin liners was $1 at Dollar Tree. The clips were around $2.99 at Michaels (without a coupon), so with the items I had on hand, this project was around $2-4.
I cannot take credit for this idea. I was inspired by a several posts:
- I remember seeing the most adorable fabric pinwheel flowers from my friend Karissa at Triple Tasking.
- I also remember seeing how Amy of Living Locurto used muffin liners last year in her Valentine’s Family Craft Challenge.
- To make the leaves for the flowers, I cut them like the petals for my paper flower tutorial.
