Frilly Coffee Filter Flowers by April Williams

Supplies needed:

  1. white coffee filters
  2. Distress stains
  3. brads
  4. flower dies
  5. heat tool

Use about 8 coffee filters and open them up flat. Use a flower die to cut out flowers from the filters. Eight layers went through my cuttlebug just fine. Use different sizes of flower dies using eight layers for each size. Poke a brad in the middle to hold the flower together.

Take the color of stain you want and start pouncing it onto the flower. The stain soaks through  all the layers pretty well. You can turn the flower over on the back side and pounce on some more stain to cover the layers better.  I also took a darker purple and pounced the edges of the flower.  I spritzed the flower some with water to blend the colors.

You can let the flower air dry or step up the drying time by heating it with your heat tool.

Now comes the patience part! LOL! Take each layer and pull it up to the middle of the flower and scrunch it tight. Keep doing this until all layers are scrunched.
