I purchased an inexpenisve pack of foil muffin cups from the Â¥100 shop (Japanese version of a dollar store).
Between each foil cup was a thin white paper one, and when I took them apart, I loved the combination of matte white with shiny metal.
I found a new way to make a fun muffin cup flower that can decorate pretty much anything youâ€™d like.
Make mini ones to glue onto cards or notebooks, or combine a few flowers with ribbon to make a floral hanging ball!
First, separate the cups and folded them in half to make a semi circle. Take each semi circle and roll it into a cone shape and secured with a small piece of tape.
*Make seven cones of each colour.
Once all the cones are completed, secure one white one into a silver one.
I used a loop of tape, but any adhesive will do.
Next, fold seven sets of white and silver semi circles.
Layer one white over a silver and roll it into a coil.
Now you should have seven cones and seven coils. Place and secure one coil into each cone.
Once thatâ€™s done, you have seven mini flowers. If you would like to stop at this step, cover the out layer with a muffin cup and add a stem (pencil, wire, twig, anything) -and you can have a stemmed bouquet.
If you would like to complete the bigger flower, secure one to another to form a circle, flip it over and itâ€™s done!
Make three large flowers and combine them to form a ball. Add a ribbon and itâ€™s a hanging decoration.
