Flower Tootsie Pops

I found these awesome sucker flowers this morning on Skip To My Lou and had to share. They are simple and inexpensive to make and would be perfect for something different to hand out for your Valentines - they'd also make a great Mother's Day bouquet. Check out the site, there are a lot of great ideas on there!

Here's how to make the Flower Tootsie Pops.


Supplies for muffin cup flowers


green masking tape
regular hole punch
paper baking cups ( six for each flower)
Tootsie Pops or Dum Dum Suckers

How to make Paper Muffin Cup Flowers


Fold four paper baking cups into half and lay two out flat.

Punch a hole 1/4 inch from the edge on the four folded papers.

Fold the other two papers in half and punch off the edge to make a hole in the center of the baking cup (like paper on left side), open back up.

Place four folded papers onto sucker stick, overlapping 1/4 of the baking cup each time a paper is added. Then place two open papers.

How to make masking tape leaves


Lay out two pieces of green masking tape about 7 inches long, sticky side facing up.  Place a piece of wire in the center of one piece.

Put sticky sides together with wire sandwiched in the middle.

 Cut a leaf shape at each end with 1 inch trimmed in the middle.

Twist leaves underneath paper baking cups.

Use mini baking cups and dum-dums for smaller flowers

It is easy to write to and from on the masking tape leaves. In no time at all you can have a whole bouquet of valentines.
