Closed Wednesday and Sunday. THE BUS STOPS HERE YOU WILL NEED: -Coffee filters (2 per flower) -Tissue paper cut to the same size as the coffee filters (1 per flower) -Green chenille stems (pipe cleaners) -Scissors -Glue -Watercolor paints -Large watercolor brush DIRECTIONS: 1. Fold each coffee filter into 8 sections. (Fold the filter in half three times.) 2. Cut a single petal shape from your folded filter. Don’t cut the sides off. Just cut an arch shape off the top. (See image) 3. Unfold the filter and paint it with water- colors. (Don’t dilute the colors much at all. Now wet your watercolor cake, and fill your brush with as much color as possible, and paint the coffee filters.) 4. Allow the filters to dry completely. 5. Fold your circles of tissue paper, and cut them into flower shapes in the same way you cut the filters. 6. Snip a tiny hole into the center of each coffee filter and tissue paper piece. 7. Roll down one end of a pipe cleaner, and slide it into the hole on the first coffee filter. (Roll down about 1/2 inch. This forms the inside of the flower.) 8. Grasp the filter in your hand and fold it up (away from the stem). Squish it. 9. Add the tissue paper layer and fold up and squish. 10. Add another coffee filter flower and fold up and squish. 11. If desired, add a tiny bit of glue where the base of the flower and the pipe cleaner connect to keep the petals in place. (Don’t glue if you plan to put the flowers in a vase.) Note: If you plan to put your flowers in a vase, you might want these items as well: One small glass vase, lime green drinking straws, 1 narrow plastic drinking cup, and 1 container of salt.
