Paper Flowers for Banner 24 freebie  

It's time to change our very large welcome banner in the fellowship area at church to a spring/summer theme. Pastor Ken and I have been working hard (and spending a fortune) planning a very special event for April 22nd as a community outreach. We are having a night of teaching about the Passover as it reveals Jesus Christ to us. We are going to have the Passover/Seder dinner along with the teaching so that everyone can experience this amazing insight that every Christian should have. You'll never see the Lord's Supper/Communion the same!
Given that we hope to have lots of visitors, I wanted the new welcome banner to be very bright and cheerful - flowers seemed the thing for spring and summer. I didn't want to paint again. It just didn't see special enough, so I've been designing and making all manner of paper flowers - 27 different blossoms in all. My table was a mountain of lovely blossoms - so happy to look at and that's not even all of them! I thought you might like to know how to make some of them, so for 27 days I'll be posting a tutorial for one of these lovely blossoms!
To make this lovely little carnation, take a small white coffee filter and trim about an inch off the ruffly top all the way around. If you need to make the flower more full, cut another strip off the ruffled part of the filter and add it on.

All you do is finger pinch the bottom edge of the strip of coffee filter and start bunching it tightly together to make a core. You can either just secure it with low melt glue on the bottom as you finger gather and wrap the strip around and around itself or you can cut a small piece of paper and glue it to it as a base. Voila! A tiny treasure!

For variety, you can tint your filters with tea, paint or ink and let dry before you assemble your flowers.
