We were so blown away by the huge paper flowers created by Morgan Levine for FamilyFun's Feb/Mar cover that we asked her to adapt a pint-size version for kids to make. Each bloom comes together in minutes, so your little florists will have a whole bouquet in no time!

Here's what you need:

  • Cupcake lines
  • pipe cleaners
  • glue

Here's what to do:

  • Make a small fold at one end of a pipe cleaner.
  • Thread on a cupcake liner and pull to the fold.
  • Dab center with glue and scrunch into a cone.
  • Repeat with at least four more liners.
  • Fold the "stem" in half and twist together, leaving 2 to 3 inches.
  • Fold tail into a leaf; twist onto the stem
