Off to Costco I went to purchase my 400 coffee filters for $3.49. What a deal! Roses by the dozens floated through my head.
My first attempt is pictured below. I did just fine cutting out the pattern pieces. Taping them up was fairly uncomlicated. It wasn't until I had to pull the petals apart and start painting them with watercolors that I discovered that my blossom was too loose. Rats. I had a bunch of floppy, sticking-together petals and hands covered in watercolor paint. Perfect. So, I tightened them up a bit, braved my way on and came up with a rose. Not a beautiful, lush, realistic rose, but a rose none the less.
A closer look:
Will I make more? You bet. I have 392 more coffee filters to use up!!
