Easy Paper Flowers

This is my version of an easy paper flower instructional. I used coffee filters and book pages.
The color possibilities are endless.
The Duck Walking West is another of my Folksy Rustic side. Click for flower patterns:

I used Netty LaCroix paper with a black velvet fabric center . I kept it simple and made one layer of papers. The chickens are going to get framed one of these days. Here is where you can get amazing papers by Netty.

Very, very lovely! I saw some over at Heather Bullard's blog done with coffee & cupcake filters. Yours are very unique though.
