Easy Watercolor Paper Flower Cupcakes For Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and I have a fun watercolor paper craft idea that will make mom smile. Hi! I’m Kim Byers of The Celebration Shoppe. Let’s make a garden full of paper daisies!

Flat paper flowers are pretty enough, but with a few more cuts and some foam adhesive squares, you can really make them lifelike.

Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores has a large assortment of papers and food crafting supplies. For this project I picked up a bit of both.

In addition to pretty paper flowers and fluffy cupcake icing, these petal cupcake liners from Wilton really make these cupcakes pop. I suggest baking your cupcakes in normal liners and then presenting them in the petal liners. You can cook right in the liners, but I think they’re prettier this way… just my two-cents. {wink}

For paper, I love this watercolor pack from DCWV. It not only has lovely paper, but several flower templates: tulips, roses, etc.

These pretty little cupcakes are tall, but look lovely stacked at varying heights. Maybe a series of cake plates in the center of your Mother’s Day table with a little flower garden of cupcakes. Mom will love it!

Looking for more creative ideas, maybe a Mother’s Day tea party? Or a Mother’s Day brunch in soft pinks and bright yellows? Or, how about a Mother’s Day wall of paper flowers and a floral cake topper made with these same watercolor papers? I’d love for you to come visit me at The Celebration Shoppe for more creative ideas!
