Default SBVC102 - Filter Through

This week's Variety Challenge is a bit odd. Recently I had to buy a new coffee maker and without thinking I bought a new one that took a different style coffee filter. Now what do I do with close to 500 coffee filters.

About two weeks or so ago I bought the Nov/Dec 2009 issue of Scrapbook Etc magazine. As I was turning the pages I stopped in my tracks and said that's what I can do with the coffee filters.

So here is what you do:

Take a coffee filter and spray it with dye (I used a spray bottle with water and reinkers). Let it dry and then pleat the filter to get the look of a flower. You can accent it with a patterned-paper for the stem. I happened to have some floral tape and used that.

I used a layout from Page Maps, under January 2009 SideMaps.

My Sample: Wheat

Good I'm not the only one, I too just bought a new coffee pot with different filters. I have two boxes of filters the cool natural ones that are sort of tea stained Never would of thought to use them on a scrapbook page. I promised the old coffee pot and filters to my Son but will now keep out a few to give this page a try. Thanks for the neat challenge Diana.

They are really good for putting in the bottom of a plant pot with holes so that the soil won't escape!
