Hope you all had a great weekend! We are excited to share another fabulous DIY project from our sweet corespondent Katie! We just love these tissue paper flower cupcake picks, they are so pretty and dainty and can be made in any color combination. We also love that they can be clustered on a cake or placed individually on cupcakes for a beautiful, festive presentation!
Tissue paper, any color you wish
Flat top wooden picks
Hot glue gun/glue
1/8" wide ribbon
Layer 6-8 sheets of tissue paper
Cut out a 2x2 inch square
Fold the squares into quarters
Hold the folded tissue at the folded point
Starting on one side, cut around to make a petal shape, being careful not to cut too close to the point. You can make your petals pointed, rounded, or any shape you wish!
Unfold the tissue and layer the flower shapes on top of each other, staggering the petals
Poke a hole in the middle of the stacked flower. I have this wonderful little punch that makes a tiny hole, but a pin or even the end of the pick will do just fine. Slide the pick into the hole, leaving room at the top of the pick
Place a dot of hot glue onto the end of the pick and let it drip down a bit
Squeeze all of the layers of the tissue flower from the bottom and hold for 10 seconds or so
Fluff and carefully separate the layers
Tie ribbon underneath the flower, to help keep it in place. If you choose you could even create a two toned flower by using two different colors of tissue paper.
