HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERE we go!

1) Dye coffee filters. You will need two coffee filters of slightly different colors to make ONE rose. (I used coffee and tea)


2) Fold your coffee filter THREE times.  Hack off the tip! BE VIOLENT!


3) Cut out a petal shape.  Make sure none of your petals are attached.  Repeat steps 1-3 with the other color.


You now have 16 petals. 

4) Curl the corners of your petals.  I use my scissors!  Grin


5)Wind some wire (I use 29 gauge) around a corsage pin (or something similar).


6) Start adding your petals with the corners facing IN, alternating the colors as you go.  Wind the wire around EACH petal. 


7) Keep adding petals, overlapping the previous one by about 1/3.  After approx. 8 or 9 petals, start facing the curls OUT.  Continue until there are NO petals left.




8. Add a toothpick to the bottom of your rose (with MORE wire ;p ), then cover said toothpick with floral tape. Sorry about the blurriness of this one.



9) Add embelishements.


10) Project complete!!! WOOOOOO - freakin - HOOOOOOOOO!



Anyways, guys and girls, that would be that! I'd love some feedback.

Thank you for the tutorial! Thats gorgeous! What a clever idea. I love how the coffee filters makes the petals look so light and delicate.

May I ask what order you used the two different colors? I love this tut, but wondered if the darker petals go on the inside or outside, or if they alternate with the lighter ones? Thanks!  Smiley
