  1. Girl….I love these flowers. I am always trying to make life like flowers and these are so natural looking. Like you I always have coffee filters. I cannot wait to try these!
    I am so proud of you! You have been through alot and still seem to just going and going. I look forward to see what you do next!

  2. Sherry – God Bless You!! This was an awesome video tutorial and unlike other projects, I actually own everything you used so I can get to work right away creating some of these little beauties! Thanks so much for doing this video and I agree, life is short so today I vow to play!!

  3. Hi Sherry – I’ve only recently become a follower of your blog – because of the inspiring projects you bring.

    Thankyou for such a great and easy to follow tutorial – making my own flowers is something I am really interested in at the moment so great timing!!

    I hope you continue to progress well with your recovery (I’m sorry – I hadn’t realised you’d had health problems).

  4. What a great and fun flower. Looks like I’ll be giving it a try.
    Hope your health is doing well. Your hair is looking good. 🙂

  5. thanks fot the great video. Love the flowers. Stay well.

  6. Awesome! video Sherry. As a visual learner I just learned a ton. The flower came out great, and is so pretty. Now I know, you don’t use a used coffee filter. LOL!!! Your looking wonderful. TFS!!! 😀

  7. Sherry you are a GENIUS!!!!!! I loved what you did with the labels eleven die the you premiered for spellbinder and thought that couldn’t be topped, will girl you just topped that. I love the sassiness of your hairdo now, easy to care for. Glad your okay. I had planned on trying to figure this out but thanks for the video I don’t have to.

  8. Sherry…WOW! thank you for sharing this tutorial….I’m loving it…..

  9. Sherry, you are so inspirational! Thank you.

  10. Thanks for video – I doubt that I would have done it correctly without it. I’m a VERY visual learner.

    Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day and hope your mending is fast and lasting.

    ps – guess I’ll have to go buy some coffee filters

  11. Great, great, great tutorial, Sherry! I like both ways of adding color to the filters and am anxious to try my hand at these flowers! Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

  12. What a great video tutorial! Thanks so much for sharing with us…I’m off to buy coffee filters. 🙂

  13. Hi, I’ve made this kind of flower with old book pages, so each flower has some kind of writing on it, but like the coffee filter ones that have some color better. Thanks for sharing. Edna

  14. You are so fun!, Thanks for sharing your creativity and spirit. Can’t wait to try these.

  15. Wonderful tutorial. Thank you, Sherry!

  16. Thank you so much for doing the tutorial. I don’t think I could have figured it out otherwise. I can’t wait to try this! Your hair looks good, BTW.

  17. Oh dear, the coffee filters I have are the thicker ones, kind of triangular shaped to fit a coffee peculator machine. They don’t look so fine. I’m a tea drinker and hubby drinks instant or uses French press/ coffee cafétere for ground coffee. I will need to look out for the type you used. These flowers are so pretty. Thanks for the tutorial.


    btw, your hair is fairly coming on now, it won’t be long, maybe a couple of months then you can get it styled the way you had it before. Looking good Sherry, take care.

  18. this could even be a girl scout project for Mother’s day. Fun project Sherry.

  19. Sherry, you are an awesome teacher and I can hardly wait til I get home to my supplies and try this technique. What a beautiful flower. I am so glad that you are doing well and your hair is growing. Keep it up!! Thank you for sharing this video. You did a fantastic job.

  20. Girl you da bomb! I too am such a visual learner. You did a great job as always. I found your blog right after your surgery. I sub to several peoples blogs but when yours pops into my inbox it is the first one I look at. I am just so amazed with your talent. Well I would like to pass along to the other ladies that coffee filters are great to use when embossing or glittering something. They don’t have static electricity. Just hold your image over the filter sprinkle your embossing powder on your image. When you are done just fold the filter in half and pour your powder back into the container. No mess and no waste. Thank you for your tutorial. Going to my room to make some flowers.

  21. Hi Sherry – I’ve been a fan of yours for some time but have never written to you before so I thought this would be a good opportunity to tell you how much I love your work. You are so talented and you do amazing things. Thank you so much for sharing your art work with all of us. I love it when people want to share what they know so everyone can enjoy creating. Sometimes all it takes is a visual to be able to do that. This is another great video lesson and I thank you so much. Beautiful flower and I do have everything you used so I can use those filters that I have stacked in my art room waiting for that “someday I’m going to use those things moment”. Have a wonderful day and I am so happy that you are recovering from your surgery so well. Have a wonderful day!

  22. Nice video Sherry – I thought for sure you were going to show how to make the “bright” one with Ranger pigment inks – you surprised me with the mini misters! Again – love that flower! Great technique and loved the little trick on folding up the filter to cut all your petals at once!

    Glad to see your hair is making a come back!

  23. Great video! Off to give this a try right now! Thanks for the inspiration!

  24. Great video tute, Sherry!! I loved it and can’t wait to try it myself. No shortage of coffee filters at this house either!! So glad I took the time to check out the video!! Thanks for sharing your talents and so glad you are back in your stamping studio more often!

  25. Hi Sherry, Thanks for the wonderful tutorial. I learned so much! 🙂 Michelle

  26. You made a great video! The flower looks so real, am going to try this soon. I have a stack of coffee filters in my room that I use to catch glitter, embossing powder, etc. so am so glad to see another use for them!

  27. great looking flowers, sherry! i love them and how easy they are to make! i do so much better with instructions when i can see rather than just reading. and this was no exception!
    and your hair is looking fun too! it’s just long enough now to feel like velvet!
    happy v day!!

  28. Sherry this is a great video. I too learn so much from your videos and your blog. Thank you for sharing so much of your skills with all of us 😀

  29. Thank you so much. Your tutorials are always so clear and concise. So happy that your recovery is going well. I love your blog and always look forward to your creations. So thankful for your willingness to share your talent.

  30. Sherry –

    Thanks for the awesome tutorial. Really appreciate your taking the time to do this for us. Beautiful flowers.

    And I think you look adorable with your downy chick fuzz hair – too cute!

  31. LOVE YOUR HAIR!!! Thanks for taking time to make this tutorial. So easy to follow. Now all I have to do is find coffee filters………our house is a CHAI Tea household.

  32. Thank you for taking the time to do this video. Like many others I am a visual type of person. Now I can just sit down and do this, you explained it so well and it looks so easy. I love your blog and have been a lurker for a long time. You are an inspiration in so many way, God Bless you and keep you safe.

  33. Sherry – I know you don’t think so but you are one spunky, brave lady!! I too went thru cancer (breast) but was so lucky and only had to have radiation and no chemotherapy. I guess I was like any other woman in that I was afraid to lose my hair, but the women I met at the clinic getting chemo and who had lost their hair were so inspiring and spirited!!

    All I can tell you is you look like you are getting everything you can out of life and the hair will come back – right now what shows are your beautiful eyes!! YOU GO GIRL!!


  34. Fantastic video…. when i saw your coffee filter flowers the other day, I fell in love with them, but wondered how you did it. I am so glad that you did the video… because I had gone and bought coffee filters and thought that I would give it a try! Now, I know I can do it because of all the helpful things in your video.

    I also wondered after I saw the earlier post if using a lunch sack would work… I did make a beautiful flower. It was because of your post that I tried something that was out of my comfort zone.


    Happy Valentines Day.

  35. Miss Badness ~ Your new DoooOO is as cute-as-a-button 🙂 I’m amazed at how fast it has grown in!

    These coffee filter flowers are sweet, but I have to get one of those non-stick mats from Ranger. I think they will make a stunning Magnolia bloom =)

    Thanks Sherry.


  36. Sherry, Glad to see your hair is growing out again! Won’t be long now! Thanks for the super video tutorial. Your flower is absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for sharing it with us!


  37. Sherry, my friend! I loved this video, what fun… made me wish I could sit and craft & create & have fun with you!!
    I love that you are so honest with your hair-loss situation, and it inspires many! I’m a B/C survivor since 2002 and love it when a woman is proudly representin’ the girls who have lost their hair for one reason or another!
    What a great video, loved to see ya get all inky and demo the flower. I want to try it myself now. I love gettin’ my hands all messy!
    Wish we could get 2gether & do some craftin’ & have some coffee… oh wait… I’m one of those un-lucky folks who has bad gittery reactions from COFFEE!!!!!! Darn it… OK maybe I’m not so Bad-ass, but I guess I’m a low-octane Bad-Ass!!! LOL! XOXO

  38. Hey, ya know, maybe one day….<3

  39. Wonderful tut. Sherry. Can’t wait to try this. I think you must have asbestos fingers.

  40. Sherry, I just wanted to say, I tried your technique and it really works! Those little flowers just ruffle right up and look so real! I am so impressed! I spoke about you on my blog and I have your link in my favorite places to visit. Keep up the good work and can I just say “You Go Girl!!”

  41. Sherry, another great tutorial; thanks for doing it! I felt my own fingers burning while you were using the heat gun 🙂 Have coffee filters and will try the technique.

  42. What a great tute!!! Love your 1/2″ hair too!!

  43. Oh my gosh, these flowers are fantastic!!! Love the video, thank you for sharing with us. I’m going to give these a try. And love the tip of using the heat gun after spritzing the edges to give the flowers more 3-d effect. 🙂

  44. Fun technique – I’m going to have to give it a try! I was at work, so I could only watch not listen, still I think I can do it.

    And you must have TEFLON FINGERS girl! 😀

  45. Sherry, your tutorials are great — and I’m not just being kind — you always make me feel like I”m sitting right there next to you! I don’t want to get into another project, I only watched the darn thing because I love you — and now I can’t wait to try it out — finally an excellent idea for using up all those coffee filters left over from girl scouts! (We don’t have that kind of a pot!) I can see whole bouquets of these little buggers!

  46. so pretty, I love the deep colors!! Thanks for sharing!

  47. I loved your video on making the flowers. They are so pretty. Thanks for sharing your talents with us. You do beautiful work that is so inspiring. I am glad you are doing videos now. I’m still waiting on one on your watercolor techniques.

  48. Hey Sherry!
    Bee-u-ti-fullll ! Ouch! you must have asbestos fingers. Nice to see you with something sprouting outta yer head. Hope all is well health wise.

  49. Thank you so much for the tutorial. You make it look SOOOOO easy!


  50. Thank you so much for sharing your video! I’m so glad to have found your site:D Handmade paper flowers are my absolute favorite to make. The next time I feature them on my site I’ll be sure to send you a link:)

  51. Great instructions and I can’t wait to try this. Makes a great embellishment! You are so kind to share this with us.

  52. Sherry, I just tried your coffee filter flower technique, and it came out just beautiful. I will send a link when I use them on a project.

  53. Hi Sherry, Thank you so much for taking the time to make and post your wonderful video! I am anxious to try these! Your tutorial was very easy to follow and you have a beautiful smile and personality! I hope you continue to stay strong, be healthy and God Bless you!

  54. Just found this tutorial, Sherry. Easy to follow and understand. I’m off to hunt down some coffee filters and give it a try. Thanks for posting this tutorial on your blog.

  55. I just posted my latest project with these flowers. My flower really turned out great this time. Thank Sherry.


  56. Just wanted to say thank you for sharing. Because I am caring for a 90 year old very frail mother, I am pretty restricted to home these days, and it really adds to my life to find people like you so willing to share your ideas. On top of that you are a beacon of courage and hope for dealing with your cancer and not letting it take over your life. Now I have to go find those coffee filters and make a flower.

  57. Sherry, your coffee filter flowers are awesome. Thanks so much for
    sharing with us. : )
    Could you please tell me the recipe (parts water and PP) for the Perfect Pearls and water.
    I can’t wait to try this.
