Foil Flowers

In the Lifebook 2013 class a few weeks ago we learned how to make foil flowers.  This is my interpretation of the assignment.
The foil flowers are made by coloring coffee filters with dylusions spray inks and assorted stencils then tearing them up and glueing them to foil.  I then took different size circle punches to punch the circles out of the paper foil.   After placing five sizes of paper foil circles together with a brad in the center I curled the edges to reveal the shines underside of the foil.

they look fascinating Cora - did you use alcohol inks to colour the foil?

Maxine, thank you for all your comments. It was nice to wake up to this morning. I added to the description how I made the flowers. It is a complicated process but lots of fun.

Thanks for the 'how to' Cora - as you say, complicated but worth it!
