First off I can't believe I didn't post anything for Friday. I thought I hit publish but guess not lol.
I came home Friday night just beat after a busy week at work. I think I'm fighting something also as I haven't felt 100% either so didn't feel like doing much but relaxing. What I probably should have done was just go to bed but oh well lol
In a few of my previous posts, you saw me do some larger flowers with coffee filters and a topiary out of coffee filters. Well I wanted to try some smaller ones so just winged it. I took 2 of the coffee filters and started folding them in half, then again and again and then cut out a circle in about a 1 1/2" diameter. I took shimmer mist and sprayed it, heavier in some spots to give it some dimension.
I then rolled them up into balls and then started to unpeel them and pinching them in the center, tighter as I got to the middle. I poked a hole in the center and put a brad in it and refluffed them and they turned out like this. I'm thinking I may add some dimension by either putting puffy paint or some glitter on them but will wait a little bit to see. I will be able to use these either on cards or on some frames. Very easy and cute!!
I also went to the mailbox and I had received my gift from the giveaway from Tracie over at Life and Times of a 12x12 Addict. It's so cute and I think I know what I'll do with this one :) Thank you SO much Tracie!!
