Yes Virginia, Those Are Coffee Filters

Yes! They really are coffee filters. Many thanks for your kind, kind words about my little flowers. Many of you asked for a tutorial. I wish I could claim this project as my own but alas I cannot! They are the brainchild of a woman by the name of Cassie Chappell. She appeared on Martha Stewart's show. Click here for the link to the instructions, including a video clip. The link is fairly long so in case it doesn't work just go to Martha's page and type in coffee filter roses in the search. If you make some of your own, send me photos and I'll post them - or post them on your own blog and let me know.

Well I have the wrong kind of filters. Go figure.

I haven't tried a frayed one - still trying to master the regular ones! They are a lot of fun though. I encourage everyone to give them a try.
