{Coffee Filter} Ruffled Box

As I was trying to make coffee filter flowers (a Pinterest inspiration) for the upcoming wedding, I came up with an idea! What if I cut the folded filters into four pieces, folded them, and then glued them to something in rows to create a ruffled effect??!!

And that's just what I did.

Using a cardboard beer box I had on hand (cut down to the handle length) and my hot glue gun, I got to work. I decided to do the ruffles at random and not row by row. Easy Peasy. 

But, this project was a little time consuming, due to the fact that I decided to line it with fabric. I did each section separately (& used hot glue to attach the pieces) instead of trying to sew a lining to put inside.

   





Currently holding my vintage Tang jars & paper lidded jars (#3)   :)


Makes a perfect box to hold craft supplies,
to put vases full of flowers in,
store momentos, 
or use as a gift basket!

  3. I love it. I don't drink very much coffee and have about a million coffee filters I got at Costco. This would be a great way to clear up space in my cupboard and not feel wasteful.
