Leftover Coffee?

A while back I was sharing some misting techniques and mentioned how I often use a bucket filled with coffee filters to hold small objects to mist.  So, that got me to thinking....what to do with all the left over, multi-colored coffee filters?

I grabbed a few of my favorite dies in roundish shapes.  You could also use paper punches.

And cut two of each size and shape.  I used two different sets of dies for these flowers.  One in a scallop and one in a more traditional floral shape.

 I layered all the pieces and punched a hole through the center with my paper piercer.

I added a brad through the center of my layers. And then scrunced the flowers to form the desired shape.

If the color isn't quite right, you can always mist a little more.

Thanks for stopping by.
