Let’s Make It

Paint popsicle sticks green and allow them to dry completely. Set them aside.


Cut the rim off the top of the paper cup. Cut the cup down to the bottom 7 or 8 times.  Carefully spread the cut strips out. Be gentle so that you do not tear the strips from the bottom of the cup. Trim the end of each strip so that it’s more narrow than the bottom of the strip. Fold over the strips and glue onto the bottom. This will create a sort of loop.

Repeat with all your cups.

Flatten out a large cupcake liner and glue to the back of the paper cup flower.


Flatten out a few large cupcake liners and fold in half, then fold one more time.


Cut out a petal shape. Glue the cupcake liners on top of the paper cup flower.

Repeat the steps above but with mini cupcake liners. Keep adding cupcake liner layers until you’re satisfied.

Glue brightly coloured buttons into the center of the flower.

Glue a popsicle stick onto the back of the flower.


Cut the rim and bottom off of a green paper cup. Cut leaves from the green paper cup and glue onto the popsicle stick.

Your paper cup flowers are complete!

These make awesome Mother’s Day gifts!

You could also use these as a get well soon flower!

Enjoy
