Start with singed flowers approximately 2 to 2.5 inches.
The ones in this tutorial are available in my Etsy shop.
All you have to do is line some alligator clips with ribbon and hot glue them to the flower.
I like to glue them to the flat side of the clip
so the flowers don't go up on one end.
Get some lollipop sticks, found in the cake aisle of your local craft shop or cake specialty store.
Put stick in cupcake, and clip flower on
Not only do your guests have a blooming cupcake, they get to take home a beautiful flower hair clip as well.
