Coffee Filter Circular Ruffles

Have you seen some of the beautiful projects people are making with coffee filters, markers and stamps?  Well it has me thinking of my coffee filters as another one of my supplies.  So, when I saw the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger Sweet World, I pulled out my coffee filters and put them to use.  

I used my Creative Memories Circle cutting tool and cut a circle in the center of the filter.  I then clipped into the center to make a "C" shape.  To get the ruffle effect, I sewed the coffee filter to my paper along the inside circle edge.  This creates an automatic ruffle.  Now, if you don't sew, you could use some terrifically tacky tape to get this look too!  To complete this card I used three coffee filters and made two rows of ruffles per coffee filter.  I then made a little banner with a heart punch, scraps of paper, crochet thread and some stickers I have had in my stash forever!  So, simple really and the results are so pretty!

Sorry I have been missing in action from blogging as my Father recently passed away.  Now I hope to get back to crafting as I have many thank you's to write and a few sympathy cards as well.  Thanks for visiting after my absence!
