Yesterday I shared a few Mother's Day projects for children. One was a Cupcake Liner Corsage. This was a project I did with my kindergarten class last year. You can find the finished product here. I thought the corsages were so cute, I decided to try to make one with a more grown-up look.
You will need:
3 Large cupcake liners, any color
2 mini cupcake liners, any color
Gold craft paint
1 piece of felt
hot glue gun
1 safety pin
1. Flatten one of your large cupcake liners.
2. Using downward strokes, brush gold paint on the edges of your liner. This does not have to be perfectly even, you are going for a brushed look. Set aside to dry.
3. Keeping your other 2 large liners lined up together, brush gold on the very edges. Do not flatten these liners. For this part, I kept my brush fairly dry, going for a more subtle look.
4. Repeat step 3 with your 2 mini liners.
5. You can give you liners more of a petal character by either cutting in to make rounded petals or simply snipping down every 4-5 pleats.
6. Take your last mini liner and pinch the base together to create a bunched center. Brush the tips of this liner as well.
7. Glue your layers together by placing a circle of glue in the center of each layer and press down one at a time.
8. Add a fancy button or pearl or both to your center!
9. Cut out a small circle of felt the same diameter as the base of a large cupcake liner.
10. Glue the felt down to the back of your corsage. Use a wide circle to glue the edges. The center of the felt should not be glued down to allow a pin to pierce through.
11. Use a safety pin the fasten the corsage to your Mom's blouse!
I hope she loves it! Definitely use Springy colors and buttons to match your Mother's style. :) I'm tempted to add one to my own accessories!
