Its So FLUFFY!!!

Okay, so maybe I am one of the few people in the world who had never seen this before.  Please don't think of me poorly.  I finally did see it. I took the idea, and I ran with it!  Ain't she just as pretty as the frosting on a lily white cupcake!  Unfortunately, I didn't take pics of the work in progress.  I was too busy picking hot glue off my burning fingers.  That's okay.  Just like childbirth, it was worth it in the end! From here forth though, I assure you, I will be documenting all the steps to the wonderful projects that will appear here.  I happened to have promised my mom one of these beauties, so as soon as I get to work on it (once my finger burns have all healed of course...) I'll take you through all the steps. You can find various versions of this project all over the web. You can use white or brown filters, or for those over achievers out there, you can color them any color you like by various means.  You can also make them in various sizes and shapes. This is an inexpensive project for someone with some time on their hands.  I used over 450 coffee filters, a round 14" foam wreath form from the floral section of my local craft store, and lots of hot glue. Did I mention to use caution with that stuff? It really burns!
