Coffee Filter Flowers
I love to make flowers to use on my cards and home decor etc. I love the tissue papers for my cards, they are so delicate and soft looking, but I found that when I would glimmer mist them or try to stamp on them I ended up tearing a bunch of them (I'm probably the only one with that problem) but it was still a problem for me. I got to thinking and thought hey coffee filters get wet and hold up so what do I have to loose? I used my sixxix to cut out the flowers, I found it was easier than punching them, if you do punch them you should put a regular sheet of paper behind it to give the punch something to grab on to. Anyway I tried glimmer misting them and stamping on them and even chalked them and they held up really well. Here is a card using the coffee filters.
