Cupcake Case Flowers

These cupcake cases are so pretty and so quick and easy to make. Just follow the steps below:
  1. Start with some pretty coloured muffin cases. Here, I have created both a 4-case and 6-case flower. Find pretty cases at the supermarket, party shops or Etsy (Bake it Pretty, Cute Cups or Layer Cake Shop)
  2. Flatten the cases
  3. Take the first case and fold it in half and then halve twice more and scrunch and fold again to form the centre of the flower
  4. Take the second muffin case (use another colour or the reverse side of the same colour) and line the centre of the circle up with the pointed end of the core piece and scrunch it around
  5. Continue doing, alternating colours until your flower is the size you desire
  6. If you wish, secure by wrapping some cotton around the base or alternately stitch a small button into the centre and do with it whatever makes you happy
  7. Hang it from the ceiling, use as a place setting or thread on some string to create a flower garland
  8. Make a cup of tea and admire your handiwork
