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.

Resources
Trim: similar gold and white, white braided (No. 900-00161-WT), and gold rickrack (No. 11041) from M&J Trimming. Paper Dresden Trim: Wild Rose Spray in Gold (DT030G) and Floral Hearts in Gold (DT007G) from blumchen.com.

    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!
