Cupcake Liner Bows

I love when I have a scathingly brilliant idea!  While perusing Pinterest the other night, I found this great tutorial for coffee filter flowers.  I started thinking, “I wish they made colored coffee filters.”  Then I realized they do!  They just aren’t called coffee filters…they are called CUPCAKE LINERS!  I scrambled to the store to grab what was left of the Christmas cupcake liners and got busy making these Cupcake Liner Bows!

{Not to mention they look super cute in their little “cupcake liner pot”…LOL}

I used a great tutorial from Brown Paper Packages.  You can find the tutorial here.

For each small cupcake liner bow, I used about six liners.  For the larger ones I used eight.

Instead of leaving the long floral wire stem, I created a loop and used my wire cutters to trim off the extra.

You can group them together and create one HUGE bow or use them individually.  Either way, they look great on the packages!

Again, upcycling and reusing is the name of the game!  You can create some beautiful from just about anything you have laying around the house!
