Cupcake-inspired Paper Flowers Tutorial

I was so inspired by the adorable cupcakes on the Basic Grey Nook & Pantry paper in this month's kit!



It got me thinking... how about using a paper cupcake liner to create a one-of-a-kind flower for one of my layouts? So, I grabbed a package of them and after some experimenting I made one... here are the instructions so you can try it out for yourself. :) (click image to enlarge instructions)



My finished result:


PS: Aluminum or patterned cupcake liners would make this project even cuter! Or, try stamping the paper first to add a pattern. You can even spray your finished flower with glimmer mist to give it color & shimmer. Try it! It's fun. :)

Have a great weekend!
