- Wedding: June 2011
I love coffee filter flowers! Can you tell me how you did the anemone’s and forget me not’s? I haven’t seen those before!
I used the coffee filter rose tutorial that is floating around on weddingbee. Once you get the hang of that it wasn’t too hard to use the method on other types of flowers, you basically just have to know the shape of the petals. The roses and anenome took me the longest to make, about two to two 1/2 hours per flower in total from cutting, dyeing, drying and putting together. I would say it took me about 40 hours to make in total, it was for sure time consuming but I am happy with it.
For dyeing I used mostly food coloring and water, with a bit of acrylic paint. I used both flat and round coffee filters, I used purple buttons for my flower centers as my main colour is purple and a ton of floral tape, floral wire, pipe cleaners and glue.

For the anemone, I just found a photo and tried to copy it. I used this kind of method for the center with a button hot glued in the middle http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRXg4JVNcdhrQzJNVaX4SwdkSnxWFm9dQCorLIzGSfXjpOIeRfWLg807Ix8yQAnd then found this photo for the petals, (i did use a lot of stick glue to hold the petals together but it worked well) http://flowerveiners.nl/catalog/images/Anemone%20Coronaria%20Petal%20(9).jpg

The light purple flowers I just kinda went for it.
Awesome Very creative. So do you sell this or you do just for fun?
I was going to ask how long it took because I figured it was probably pretty labor intensive! You did a fantastic job!!!
