SO beautiful. thanks so much for the detailed instructions.

Do you think it'll be possible to use the same technique to make Freesias??

I recently saw some really eye catching Freesias at

I think the maker used tissue paper instead though. I also wonder if tissue paper is better than coffee filter or vice versa. Perhaps one is more durable than the other?

Thanks!.. You certainly could make the freesia's you linked, by using the coffee filters, they will be more sturdy than tissue paper, but some like the look of the tissue paper.. also the coffee filters need to be painted which gives a little more ability to make them look life-like..

They are very pretty, is it too hard to dye the filters?

Hey!.. No they are not hard to paint, once you put the filters together into the flower shape.. you can use a nice watercolor.. i get mine in the tubes.. and then blend the colors you want.. if you use too much water with reds they seem to separate funny on the filters though.. but I have found doing the same thing with acrylics makes the petals keep their shape nicer as it makes the paper more sturdy..
