How To Stiffen Coffee Filter Flowers After Tie Dyeing?

I have made flowers out of the coffee filters, but now due to me adding color the paper is limp. Does anyone know how I can stiffen the paper again? Thank you in advance for any advise you may have.

You don't mention what you used to dye the filters. I have made many, many coffee filter roses and never had a problem. I use powdered drink mix to dye the filters. I have used the mix with sugar and it seems to make the filter a bit stiffer but normally I just use the unsweetened powder since I don't want to attract critters. I have soaked the filters overnight in a particular color and the paper was still o.k. not limp at all. What did you use to dye the papers with?

I dabbed bingo dabbers on the filters and then sprayed water so the colors would run.
