1. Begin by folding your small cupcake liners in half, then quarters, and finally eighths to create a small wedge shape. Hold the center (the pointy end) and use your scalloped shaping scissors to cut a rounded “v” shape from the opposite end. When you unfold your liner, you should have a flower shape.

2. Repeat step number one, and cut all large and small cupcake liners into flowers.

3. Stack all of your small liners so the petals are off set. Staple an “x” in the center of the stack. Stack the large liners in a similar fashion and staple together. Stick an adhesive foam dot in the center of the large stack, and stick the two stacks together.

4. Fold all of the petals forward, except the bottom layer, to fluff your flower. The bottom layer should remain flat.

5. Use your XXXXL circle punch to punch out a back for the corsage from cardstock. Use a dab of hot glue to attach the pin back to the back of your circle.
