How to Make Cupcake Liner Flowers

Today I am feeling a bit icky, pain and discomfort is no fun during the recovery process, but that does not stop me from spending time with my little one.  He and I agreed to have a craft day on this stormy and humid afternoon, he loves crafting, so this is what we did, or shall I write what "he" did; he's at the stage where he wants to do things all by himself.  My four year old enjoyed it and gave the final product as a gift to Grandma.
This is a great project for you and your little ones.

You will need Cupcake liners (5-8  per pipe cleaner) solid, prints or mix it up, Pipe Cleaners, Floral Tape and Safety Round Tip Scissors for the kids.

Bend an inch of the pipe cleaner tip rolling it into a small ball to prevent liners from slipping off.

Once your pipe cleaners have a round end, pinch a hole on your cupcake liners with the opposite end of the pipe cleaner (watch your fingers)
Insert the pipe cleaner into the holes through the inside of the cupcake liners one at a time. Keep repeating until your desired amount of cupcake liners are all threaded unto the pipe cleaner.

Begin pinching each cupcake liner with your fingers one at a time, beginning with the top one. Repeat until all the cupcake liners have been shaped.

Starting as close as you can to the edge of the cupcake liners, wrap your pipe cleaner with the floral tape, it takes a little practice before you or your little gets good at it. I helped my son start it, then he was on his own.

Covered in the the green floral tape and shaped; Now you have a beautiful flower!

Happy Crafting!
