Good Evening ALL!
Just wanted to stop in real quick and say for one, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for your super kind comments. Much appreciated you all!
Two, I received emails and questions on how the coffee filter flower were done, so I taped a quick little video showing you how. This time making a quick tag....
Here you go...
Once again, Thank you kindly for your amazing comments!
Have an awesome tomorrow!

Awesome! Thanks for the clear instructions.ReplyDelete
Love the tag! How cool with stamping on the flowers. Just a nifty idea. Love your videos. ThanksReplyDelete
I see stuff like that and wonder how it is done and it looks so hard .... loved that you shared and it was doable ... THANKS !!!!!ReplyDelete
What a great video! You make it look so easy Jim. I don't have any coffee filters but may try it with something like muffin cases. I love how you made your bow too!ReplyDelete
I inked up some coffee filters before I came to work and I cannot wait to get home and make some flowers and or other creations thanks for the inspiration can't wait to shareReplyDelete
Such a pretty, quick tag. Going for coffee filters this evening!!ReplyDelete
I am new to your blog, but not your work. I have been an admirer of your creations since I first saw them quite awhile ago. I'm thinking of purchasing your writing desk kit on Etsy. Is it very complicated? I have been a paper crafter for about 5 years & have done various projects, but I think this would be my most ambitious attempt.ReplyDelete
Patricia Good Morning!Delete
There are two, the ladies roll top and the gents writing desk. I bet you're talking about the gents. I'm sure you can do it. If you get stuck anywhere just email me and I'll walk you through it. You can do it.
One of the first things I do every day,after getting my Iced non-fat Chai latte, is to read your blog and watch any videos or ustreams that I couldn't see during the broadcast (due to my country living "string and tin" can internet provider>) I have to say today's made me feel like I can actually do this. I am gonna get on my chariot, go the yard and find the little sticks and start gluing, spraying and coffee filtering. Yay, you made my day! (as you do lots of times) thank you so much! Love you!
Hey Jim - loved the tag! Can't wait to see you again.ReplyDelete

You are fun. Thank you for sharing.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the video...always fun to watch you work. And...LOVE how you did the bow!!! Gotta give the flowers and bow a try but have to get coffee filters 1st...I know...I'm the only one in the world who doesn't drink coffee...LOL!!ReplyDelete
Great flowers! Here's a little tip, if you've never tried it. Take the used coffee filters, rinse the coffee grounds off (used grounds make good mulch/compost for the garden) but don't wash out the stain, and let them dry. The coffee stain left in the filters is beautiful. Make flowers out of these filters and your tag or card will not only be pretty, but it will smell wonderful for a long time. I love your blog. It brings me joy every day!ReplyDelete
Certainly a different tag Jim, and I really like it.ReplyDelete
Great colors in the flowers. You have such a great imagination.
Love the colors you used! Another tip - Fold the coffee filter into quarters to trim the edge for a much quicker finish. Thanks for showing us how you made them.ReplyDelete
Amzing, love the tag .. thanks for the video. I need a birthday card, but I think I'll make a tag with the flowers .. thanks .. Happy Friday !ReplyDelete
You are so imaginative, Jim! I hear coffee filters and seam binding calling my name! Thanks much for sharing!ReplyDelete
How cute! I learned a lot from watching this vid. Thanks so much. Now I need to go buy me some coffee filters!ReplyDelete
That is absolutely the cutest thing. Thanks for showing, gotta do this!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tutorial, Jim!! FLowers are so cute and dimensional...ReplyDelete
Thank you Jim for another awesome idea. Off to my workroom to try this.ReplyDelete
Have a great Texas (hot, hot, hot) weekend.

Fun tutorial, Jim. I especially like the effect of the harlequin stamp on the yellow flower. Fabulous bow! One of my favorite things about your tutorials is the way you talk your process aloud. You also say cute little things while you are working. You are the fun in my morning.ReplyDelete
I love this tag!! The flowers are lovely. Thanks for sharing this technique with us.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for this tutorial, I am going to buy coffee filters when I go to the shops today!!! Thanks again for sharingReplyDelete
Love the tag! The flowers are so pretty & the bow is great.ReplyDelete
thanks for the great video and the idea for the coffee filters..I have been playing around with those too lately!ReplyDelete
How creative! I recently learned how to make the coffee filter flowers using Tim's Tattered Flowers die. So, today when I went to Costco, I tried to get a super large Costco-size package of filters. They don't have them any more!ReplyDelete
When I started the video, my husband asked me if that was why I tried to get the filters at Costco today. Busted!!!!!!
Love the flowers, but I have to say that what impressed me was the bow. When you started wrapping the seam binding around your fingers it dawned on me how simple a pretty bow can be. Well, doh and I'm slapping my forehead. I'm starting to hope you'll do an entire video on just bows! Some of us are, shall we say, challenged in that area. LOLReplyDelete
Jim - I really love reading your blog and watching your videos - the size of your archival ink pad is giagnormous plus it has a swing lid - is that a special limited edition kind? Mine is like half the size of that and I always wish for a bigger achival pad to ink up tbackground sheet type stamps.ReplyDelete
Love what you did with the coffee filters! Never done something like that and might have to give it a try!!ReplyDelete
Love, love it!! I now have to go buy coffee filters and give it a try. Your videos and YOU are awesome!!ReplyDelete
What an awesome tag! I wasn't sure about those coffee filters at first....but they look absolutely gorgeous! You are a wizard, Jim!ReplyDelete
I really love this tag! The flowers are an fun, easy and cheap way to add dimension. Great job!ReplyDelete
hey, Jim, ma man!!....where I'm from we say "yeller"!! (ha,ha) you're over the top w/the tutorial of coffee filters; have at least 4 packs of these, collectiong dust, but, no more! TFS!! Y R SUPERReplyDelete
Thanks again for a fun project. My grandsons and I have been doing coffee filter with bingo daubers and now we can make tags with stamped flowers. Fun, fun, fun... they love the "Art Room" at grandmas. GracieCakes316ReplyDelete

Oh, I LOVE these! The addition of the twigs was a genius idea. Gonna make 'em, yes I am! Thank you!ReplyDelete
I see videos like this and I want to run and do it myself. But I stop short and say "What do I do with it after it is made?" That question always keeps me from crafting anything. I wish that there was some suggestions at the end to answer that question, I would love to have an answer, as I want to make practically everything I have seen on the blogs.ReplyDelete
