I've seen some super cute ideas lately for making your own Prima flowers and felt flowers, so I thought I would share another idea I got from my friend Leslie. This is super cute and super frugal--it's coffee filters!
You can use a variety of die cutting tools. If you use a punch, you'll want to use the more sturdy size 4 cone cofee filters. For the Cuttle Bug, Quick Kutz, Side Kick and bigger Sizzix machines, anything goes. I especially like the Big Shot type dies because you can fold a stack of filters into a triangle shape to focus on one portion of the die and going through lots of layers. This makes a ton of flowers in a hurry!
Ink them Up!
Another tip is to ink the edges, dye the whole flower with re-inkers or stamp on the flowers. You can achieve so many looks by adding a little ink!
Check out the samples below for ideas on mixing coffee filter flowers with paper, cardstock, Bazzill Bitty Blossoms or other flowers.
Finish them Off!My favorite way to give flowers the finishing touch is with a fun brad.
