After talking about flowers being the jewellery of the home over the weekend I thought this Martha Stewart tutorial I spied over on Decor8 the other day was just perfect for Make It Monday

                                                Coffee Filter Flower Baskets


Pre-ruffled and strong enough to get wet,  coffee filters make perfect flower-making materials. They're cheap too!
Used here are some pretty paper cups & bowls for the flower's centers. The small bowl works really well as the centre of the flower. Martha has used food coloring to dye them and food coloring to paint the bowls and cups as she was filling them with sweets. But if you're not making these to hold edible items, or you're only dying the coffee filters, you can use thinned paint.
