cupcake paper flowers ... ♥




i've had a few inquiries about the paper flowers 
that were on my craft table in the Better Homes & Gardens feature :) 
i originally got the idea from Martha here and just tweaked it a little 
by using the natural brown color floral wire 
(i liked that idea better than using the green floral tape)

so thought i'd share! come on, let's make some stuff ♥






gather up your glue gun, the floral wire & some cupcake papers
these colors were inspired by that jar of conversation hearts i have sitting on my craft table :)







it's simple really, and the pictures will walk you through it ... 
poke wire through paper, hot glue near the middle and pinch around the wire
(don't burn yourself!!)






repeat 3 times, or more, depending how puffy you want your flowers














ta-da! see?





what the bottom looks like :)






these would be a sweet Valentines Day gift
find a can or glass jar, wrap some ribbon or kraft paper around it and deliver :)
it'll be loved ... promise.






my craft room is happy it's Valentines Day too ...
(heehee)










short & sweet ♥
make lots :)
happy crafting! 

sweet parties here ♥
