Every weekend I make some kind of treat. Just for myself. Maybe sometimes for Logan. I’m a sucker for cupcakes and I like to decorate them more than I like to eat them. Wait, wait. That’s a lie. I actually like to eat them more.
I recently purchased Handmade Weddings and it is an AMAZING book. There’s all sorts of inspiration for parties and weddings. There’s one particular project that shows you how to make felt boutonnières. I tried to make them, but mine weren’t turning out as neat and pretty as I wanted them to. They kept turning out like these crazy and funky flowers that I kind of fell in love with. They take about a minute to make and they are super cute on top of a frosted treat! Read all of the instructions after the jump.
To make your own you’ll need:
- Felt (9 x 11 inches)
- Hot glue gun
Cut 3 x 9 inch strips.
Fold the strips in half lengthwise and cut (starting at the folded side!) 3/4 of the way to the edge.
Repeat the whole way down the strip.
Once it’s all cut, pull the top half to the right 1/4 inch.
Start at the right end and roll it up as tight or as loose as you would like. Use small drops of hot glue to secure it along the way.
Put a little drop of hot glue on one end of a toothpick and stick it inside the flower. Pinch the bottom tight until the glue dries, and you’re done! Stick these little flowers in the tops of your cupcakes and admire the cuteness.
