How to Make a Bouquet Using Coffee Filters
Grab a stack of coffee filters. The fuller the flower that you want the more filters you will want to add.
Straighten out your coffee filter and smooth that onto your die cut. Make your sandwich by putting on cutting pad on the top and bottom. Run that through your die cutting machine.
Hold down your coffee filter flower with one hand and peal away all the excess paper in the other.
Dye your coffee filters whatever color you would like. Using a pipe cleaner a stem for your flower, slip that through the hole in the center of your flower. Place a dot of hot glue on the end of your pipe cleaner and add a pearl.
While you want for that to dry begin scrunching up the layers of your flower to get that fluffy look.
You can rotate your flower so that when you scrunch it up it adds different dimensions.
Push all your coffee filter petals to top now.
