Playing with coffee filters ...

I've been having fun making paper roses, they are easier to make than to paint! I guess practice makes perfect, so I am going to persevere. I can only get the unbleached ones here, I am keen to try the white ones.

Made some more flowers ......

The bigger one is 3D and has a very deep back ... don't really know what you could use it for. The other one is very simple, just a circle with 8 slits cut towards the centre, stopping short of the centre. Then fold each segment down the middle, put several layers together, use a small flower and a brad as the centre. Would be lovely in co-ordinating colours or could be decorated with ink, paint, bling etc.

Flowers with a corner rounder

Tried Toni's corner rounder flowers yesterday and this is the result. Started with 50mm, 55mm and 66mm circles and used the EK Success corner rounder which does seem to be the best.
You can find the instructions here,2335.0.html.
