New and Improved


I changed the flowers for my African violets and now they look much better. I colored a coffee filter with a dark purple permanent marker. The thinner paper and the richer color look so much more realistic. The violets in the black and red pots will be showing up soon in my zibbet shop. I changed the flowers on the plants I made for me to keep, too. These are really fun to make!

Coffee filters *forehead slap* of course! That's the perfect paper for petals, genius as always De :D

Great job on the African Violets, they are my favorite house plant. Thanks for giving us some hints on making them.

Beautiful, De! I love African violets, my mom always kept some on the window over the kitchen sink when I was growing up. Yours look just like them! :)

Thank you all very much!

I love African violets, too, but can't seem to keep them alive, lol. This way I can at least enjoy them in mini. :)

April, I can't take credit for the coffee filter idea. My friend, Jayne, of Tallulah-Belle Originals makes absolutely amazing mini plants and she gave me the idea.
