Floral Cupcake Liner Tutorial

I have several different post over the next couple of days for Valentine's Day.  I would like to have a Valentine Tree someday, covered in Valentine Oranaments and handmade papercrafts.  So I decided to get started this year by creating a couple of candy pouches I could hang on a tree.  This is the first one.  I created my own template for my pouch, scanned it, and can now print it over and over again.  I also created my own frilly/floral embellishment using some mini cupcake liners I had.  The image is from the same Dover Vignette Clip Art Publication I have mentioned before.  I got mine at a local used book store and it was loaded with vintage images for all the holidays.  Here is a link where you can get it from from Dover :

How to use mini cupcake liners to create a handmade frilly embellishment :

I just love the fan fold on the sides of cupcake liners and decided they would make the perfect embellishment.  So I played around with them until I came up with the following.  I hope you are inspired to look at cupcake liners in a whole new way from now on!

Floral #1


Flatten and cut 4 cupcake liners as shown above.  Layer them, staggering them so that now gaps are seen.  Fluff them.

Floral #2

Fold cupcake liner in 1/2.  Then fold in 1/2 a second time.

Fold in 1/2 a third time and snip the pointy end off.  Fluff as shown above.

Create 4 of these and then join them together as shown above, slightly overlapping the edges.

Adhere to Floral #1 as shown above.  Now you are ready to embellish the center with whatever you like!!
