Faux Prima Flowers



I am using my Cricut machine to make Prima style flowers using cone shaped coffee filters and coloring them w/ various inks. They cut very flat, and then I add dimension by scoring and embossing them by hand. A good way to get just the right color flower for a project.

What a resourceful idea! I have tons of Prima's, but, I swear, I *never* have the right color, so I am always coloring a white/off-white one. Thank you!!!

Thanks for the cut file! I made some befor with punches, then I scord them on a foam mat and I punched my scoring stylus through the senter to add more dimention. I never thought about the coffee filters though and I have many since I make books with them. PS welcome to the SCAL user group!
