How to put together this Cupcake Liner Flower Craft: 


It’s very easy and you can let your little one take the lead! 


  • I set out different pieces of tissue paper, buttons, cupcake liners and pre cut construction paper leaves and stems on a tray. 

  • My LO’s were to grab the pieces and create a cute flower using their imagination. 

  • They started with gluing the leaves onto the stems. 

  • Then, they grabbed a cupcake liner to create the flower! 

  • They also used tissue paper as the flower. 

  • Then, they used buttons to decorate their flowers. 

  • If you are not comfortable with buttons, you can use pom poms to decorate your flower craft 🙂
