I posted this weekend about my coffee filter roses being a complete failure (http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/coffee-filter-roses-complete-fail). Some of you bees helped me out with some tips and encouragement so I gave it another try. I’m much happier with my results today, although it does need to be perfected. It took me a long time to do one rose but hopefully I’ll get better. I think I’ll make 3 per bouquet, so I’ll need to make a total of 21. My bridesmaid bouquets will be white silk roses, paper kusudama flowers, white silk cala lilies, and now, these coffee filter roses will help round them out!
(Sorry for crappy phone pics again!)

So much better – those look great!
If they’re anything like the tissue paper flowers I was doing this past weekend, after you get a few done, you’ll really get the hang of it and things will move more quickly. GOOD LUCK!

Thanks everyone! They are getting easier but I am finding that I can only do like 3 flowers at a time before I get annoyed with them 🙂 Atleast i’m only making 21…that’s 7 days!

@Wannabe-diy-bride: You did awesome!!! The rolled edges on the petals really add a nice touch. Way to go! 🙂
