Coffee Filter Flower!!

Good Morning :-)

It’s Thursday, only one more day until the crazy weekend!  Do you have big plans to celebrate the 4th?  We will be watching fireworks for sure (now a priority with kids!)!

I made today’s card for my sister’s birthday.  I love the flower.  It is made using coffee filters!

Isn’t it awesome?!  I started with the basket-style coffee filters (not the cone shaped ones), and re-inkers.  First, I added a few drops of die to about 2 tsp. water (do this for each color used).  Next, using a watercolor paint brush, paint your coffee filters (I used one filter per flower layer).  Once they were all painted, I used my hair blow dryer to dry them out flat.  Now they are ready to run through the Big Shot with the XL Flower Folds Die.  Once cut, I layered them with dimensionals between some of the layers.  Finish with a big button in the center.  Fun and easy!  :-)

The lady bugs are from SU!’s Darling Dots set.  I stamped them then colored over the head and antennae with a darker color.  They are also on dimensionals.

I hope you like it!

Have a wonderful, safe 4th!!
