How to make flowers from coffee filter using dies and Sizzix tools ♥

I made this gift box for Magnolia Doo Hickey Vol 2. And I will now show you how I made the poinsettia flowers.

I used my Big Shot from Sizzix for the cutting. And the dies are Poinsettia from Magnolia.
I make the flowers from Coffee filter paper.

I cut out several poinsettia. For the large flower I use three large poinsettia and three small ones.
For the small flower I use three small ones.

To shape the flowers I have used my Susan's Garden Tool Kit from Sizzix

Here I have shaped all the flowers I am going to use for my project.

For colouring the flowers I made a mix with my Distress Ink, re-inkers and Opalite golden mist. I have used Tea Dye. Scattered Straw, Antique Linen - six drops of each. Then I added 1-2 drops Opalite, to make it shimmer. This mix gives the flowers a golden look. 


Spray the colour mix on to the flowers and let it dry.

When they are dry, put them together.

Here are two finished poinsettia flowers. 
And under you see the decorated gift box.
