This took me over an hour and I'm not there yet. I don't have a three leaf punch so I hand cut each petal and glued them on one by one.
I used painted coffee filters but I think my handy dandy table paper will look better. It's thinner and perhaps I can get a better effect with that? Bougainvillea petals are very transparent. That's what makes them so beautiful.
I'm going to try painting one side of the paper pink and the other side red or orange and see how that looks. As you can see I have a LONG way to go! I'm going to try again tomorrow.
Hope you have a good night!
