• Fluted cupcake liners, standard size and mini size.
• Scissors (I like fine-tipped scissors best – Fiskars Micro-tip)
• Quick-setting gel glue (I prefer Beacon 3-n-1 adhesive)
1. Cut a circle in the bottom of the largest cupcake liner (poke scissors in the middle to make a small hole and then cut out as pictured).
2. Using the petal markings on the liners as a guide, cut down, in between the colored areas, to create defined petal shapes.
3. Scrunch up the bottom of the largest cupcake liner just a bit, so that it conforms to the size and shape of the bottom of the smallest cupcake liner. (The small folds and pleats that will occur give the petals more dimension and movement.) Put a little glue on the inside edge of the largest cupcake liner and put the smallest liner in the middle. Press the edges of the largest liner around the smaller one and hold for a few seconds, until the glue sets.
Place the finished flowers in egg cups (or just place them on the table or plate). Fill with small candies.
