DIY coloRed Coffee Filter Flowers
I've had lots of questions about the coffee filter flowers I did with Glimmer Mist & crepe paper ruffles. So...even though the pix are bad...just had my cell phone handy while I was doing it..I thought I'd give you some info:
step No. one> Create the Coffee Filter flowers following my video OR whatever way is easiest for YOU!
step No. two> With your favorite colors of Glimmer Mist, spritz a few squirts all over the flower. Be careful, because if you get it too wet, it will get too soggy! Let dry a bit...then sop up your excess spray with your flower....come on...sop it up! You'll get a lot of mileage from your GM! :) and...give your flowers more color!
step No. three> Take a roll of crepe paper streamers & get your sewing machine out....Simply slide in the streamer as you work it through the sewing machine with a simple straight stitch. This is so great because you can make them as long as you need them.
Below, I have them hanging down from a very high ceiling, & I did 3 different lengths for variety.
step No. four> Staple your colored flowers onto the ruffle & swag, hang, wrap, adorn!
