These are the images that got me so excited.
|Cut the centre out of a few stacked coffee filters|
To create your own ruffles follow these easy steps. Grab a few coffee filters, and cut out the centre. I'm saving my centres to use on another craft someday. So I had to give it a try for myself. I thought the ruffle layers were a little large though, so I cut them in half, both lengthwise and widthwise.
I then grabbed a handful of Studio Calico Mr. Huey's
and began dying the ruffles one at a time.
End result looked like this. I did end up adding an extra shade of green.
You'll notice that the coverage is a little splotchy in some areas.
I decided not to worry about it, but just to go with the flow.
Using double sided tape I covered the bottom, front of the card and began layering.
I snipped off the parts of the ruffles that were over hanging.
To finish it off, I simply added a couple little embellishments,
and voila, a happy little card to add to my stash.
