Paper-Cup Flowers

The Martha Stewart Show

Fold and glue miniature baking and candy cups to make flowers, or cut them into leaves.

Tools and Materials
Two paper cups
Fast-drying craft glue
Small gold brad

Paper Cup Flowers How-To
1. Snip two paper cups in half, as shown. Turn halves inside out.

2. Pleat each half, as shown. Secure pleats with a dab of fast-drying craft glue.

3. Join four pleats at their points with fast-drying craft glue.

4. Affix flower inside a third inside-out paper liner if desired. To finish, pierce the flower with a small gold brad. To make a more ornate flower, you can place a bit of embossed gold trim at the center before adding the brad, or glue cutout leaves beneath the flower.

    I'm unable to find the pretty paper candy cups that Martha used on her show today - she mentioned "Viking Imported" but all I see there are candy bar wrappers. Can someone help me find the pretty candy paper cups she mentioned today? Thanks!
