Cupcake Liner Poppies

These are so simple to make but really beautiful. You could use the technique to make garlands , add flowers to invites and even make brooches.  One tip:  the labels peel off easily but if they are saturated in paint it gets tricky, so try not to gob it on the middle.

  1. Gather your materials you will need some paint, dot labels ( from stationary aisle), cupcake liners in different sizes, brushes, card stock and double stick tape. Ignore the ribbon- at first I was thinking I’d make a garland.
  2. Start by putting the circular labels in the middle of the liners.
  3. Paint. I had so much fun painting these , crafts are so relaxing.
  4. Let dry.
  5. Peel off the center to reveal a uniform middle for all the flowers.
  6. Tape some of the smaller flowers into the middle of larger ones.
  7. Tape flowers onto the card stock. I think I may frame it.

    they did turn out so pretty! we usually make flowers with layered tissue paper, but I like the effect of the painted cup cake liners.

    Actually your “Poppies” look like the wild morning glories growing on so many fences here which reminds me – I have to walk my dogs

    I love this activity for my little girls! You could paint these in red, white and blue for 4th of July cards or invites to a party. Thank you for your wonderful crafts!

    These are just gorgeous! They would look beatiful framed in a shadow box. I think they actually look nice with those colored circle stickers left in the middle as well.
