Hello there and happy happy Friday to you all!! I have a fresh idea that I wanted to share with you today!! Can you tell what it might be already?? Well..I won't hold you in suspense any longer...
Did you know that I made these flowers out of COFFEE FILTERS? Yep, that's right!! I had a super fun time pulling out my coffee filters from the cupboard and spraying them with different shades of glimmer mists. And, of course, I just had to highlight this super fab sentiment that comes in the ippity " DELIGHTFUL LITTLE THINGS" stamp set by popping it out with Helmar Zapdots!! I've added some lace for a delicate touch, the striped paper and the flourish papers are from Graphic 45, and have been lifted just a tad off the card to give it a little flair!! The card base is a Silhouette die cut card base that I cut in black and then layered another piece in Kraft on top!!
I got a little carried away, as I sometimes do, and made some more flowers in different styles & sizes. There are the bold yellow, blue, and orange rolled type flowers, and then the ones that I made on my card today..don't they kind of look like little carnations? (smile) What I really love about these flowers is they look so delicate (and would perhaps be frail or possibly tear), but no way...they are actually pretty strong!! So, to me..they look like tissue paper, but they are not!! These flowers have all been Glimmer Mist (the one in the center has two colors mixed together), but I could see even maybe tea-dye or even using coffee as a dye on your filters would make for a beautiful vintage look.
Well, that about wraps it up for me today! I feel like I need a cup of coffee now.. Uh oh..do I have any filters left?? Hope your weekend is fun!! Give these a try, 'cause I think you will have fun playing with COFFEE FILTERS to make all different kinds of flowers for your ippity cards or projects!!
