Directions to make Flower Petals Cupcake Toppers

First cut out your flower petals. Then pin them one by one by sticking a pin through the middle of the circle portion. There should be eight petals in each flower. It doesn’t matter what order you put them in and you can spin them around later to change the way the colors blend. We loved the ombre effect ourselves.  Once you have all the petals attached, lightly bend them upwards to keep the petals in place (you can always add a dab of glue between each petal if you are concerned about them not staying put).

Then take your pin and attach it to a toothpick by wrapping washi tape around both at an angle. Wrap the pin until it is covered but not all the way to the bottom of the toothpick.
