Coffee Filter Flower

The May/June issue of Paper Crafts magazine showcases cards using supplies from your kitchen. It inspired my to make a flower using coffee filters.



First I punches out some scallop circles and one inch circles. Then I generously misted them with the Color Shine spray. I gave then lots of time to dry before I layered them into a flower with a brad.



I used an OWH sketch to assemble a simple card with some of my favorite paper and ribbon. This is part of my "homework" for my June Stamp Club.

Here is the finished card:


I am adding this card to the Simon Says Stamp "Anything Goes" challenge.

Supplies Used:
Stampin' Up!: Pattern Paper, Scallop Punch, Small Circle Punch, Ribbon, Brad
Papertrey Ink: Card Stock
Martha Stewart: One Inch Circle Punch
Heidi Swapp: Color Shine Spray
Misc: Coffee Filters

Cute - you've reminded me that I could change the color of bunches of white flowers I have sitting around and get them put to use too - before I go raid the kitchen for filters. Thanks!

Cute! I have a million flowers already that I need to use up, but this definitely gives a different look to a flower (and a good chance to play with mist!).
