After I shared my Coffee Filter Flower Video Tutorial with you Bad Girls, several of you made amazingly creative projects that blew my mind. I wanted to do a blog post to honor those.
I also wanted to show you what inspired me to start making Coffee Filter Flowers (see the GIANT Coffee Filter Flowers below), and wait! take a look at "this girl with the coffee cup" as she's known at her high school, who made her prom dress out of coffee filters! I knew as soon as I saw this that you Bad Girls would appreciate it, isn't it fantastic? There's more jaw-dropping eye-candy if you read on...

Our own Leslie Cranwill created this luscious banner from my tutorial for her daughter.
I bet we all will want one now. I believe she used tissue paper as a substitute for coffee filters, you could also dye coffee filters to be pink. I love the various size flowers, and all the ribbons hanging luxuriously from the banner. Quite delightful! Next after this is another Bad Girl.............

Next up is the creative genius of Bad Girls Member Kristi aka Alligatorally, who also involved her daughters in making these and it now hangs in their room above their bed, under a banner. They really look awesome lined up in rows and columns, with a tiny butterfly here and there. I'm so super impressed! Now you have got to see the GIANT Coffee Filters that were my ORIGINAL inspiration....
This photo of GIANT COFFEE Filters was what inspired me to try to figure out on my own, how to make coffee filter flowers in the first place. I thought they were one of the MOST ROMANTIC things I had ever seen, being a lover of all things SHABBY CHIC. Absolutely MARVELOUS and DELICIOUS, yes?
And then, the same day almost, I started seeing coffee filters flowers everywhere! just like as if you buy a yellow station wagon and then you see yellow station wagons everywhere.
and then Debbie aka wyscrapper, a Bad Girls member, spoke up and said, "Hey look, I've made ROSES!"
Just unbelievable - so beautiful and realistic!!!! What talent we have in our members!!!! Wow!
So you see, there is no limit to what you can make from something that you probably have been using every day already! Your only limit is your own IMAGINATION!
See you next Tuesday.
ETA: I was inspired by my own blog post!
