Detailed Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Prepare Your Cupcake Liners

Start by flattening out both the small and large cupcake liners.

Cut the photo of your child into a circle that matches the size of the smaller liner’s center. Glue this photo in the middle of the smaller cupcake liner. This will be the heart of your flower, making the craft truly personal.
