I made this frame out of coffee filters (about 30). I took 3 filters apiece and folded them in half, then in fourth, than again. I snipped the corner very slightly and painted different colors of markers or paint. While they still folded, I wetted each flower with water….and the water seep through the flower and made the colors spread through the flower. I layed the filters till they were dry. Then I used q-tips to push through the hole that I made previously and cut one end of the q-tip. I fluffed the other end of q-tip by gluing the excess cotton I took off and make it like it flower bud and color it black.., Snip the q-tip at angle and push through each flower through the styrofoam frame.
