Step 12: Make Lots of Filter Ruffles!

We have to make lots and lots of ruffles for the side panels. Start by taking un-dyed coffee filters and cutting out a hole from the center of the filter, removing everything that isn’t pleated. 

Do this a bajillion times to build up a collection of ruffles!
<p>so sassy girly and artsy!!! love it excellent job!!!</p>
<p>That is brilliant!</p>

<p>THIS IS PURELY AMAZING! I Plan to make this for a doll corset. I mean only thing that changes is the base..and I will resize the flitters and such for the doll..</p>
<p>That is so interesting. I love it!!</p>
Gosh, that's beautiful. Well done!

Congrats, this is amazing! Not only that but the woman modeling it is devastatingly beautiful.
Absolutely awesome!! You should send one to Lady GaGa, if she will wear meet I'd almost bet she'd where this!! Very cool!!
Gorgeous! I was shocked to read how it was made. At first, I thought maybe it was material stained with coffee. Unbelievable! 5*
After seeing this, i feel like a new woman. Must remember to get rid of the old one first though. :-)<br><br>Very creative!
I love my coffee (cappuccino) with whipped cream and cinnamon, but this takes the cake!
I missed a step here...did you add a stiff paper back to the back of the corset underneathe the coffee filters before you added the grommets?
No, the layer of filters was built up thick enough that she was probable able to simply place the non-corrugated cardboard under the wrong side. It's most likely the type of cardboard you find under notepads; less than a millimeter thick, slightly flexible, but strong. Well that or something else.
Positively genius! I love it! Worth its weight in coffee!!!!! the good kind!! I love it all.
Fantastic! <br>You need to get in touch with www.deadlygroundscoffee.com and audition to be a spokesmodel! (It's a new coffee company my friend started, and the roasts are almost as amazing as that instructable!) <br>Nice job!
