I Make Wreaths


For all you not named Missy and your birthday is not July 29th please read on and enjoy the blog.

As you could probably gather I have a friend named Missy and her birthday is coming up. Now we do not normally do presents for adults these days but I was on Stumble Upon and I stumbled upon this KoJo Designs Tutorial for a tea wreath. It mentioned it was great for a tea drinking friend. Missy is definitely a tea drinking friend. Perfect! Plus it meets all my requirements. I don't have to sew anything, I had everything I needed on hand, it hardly takes any time at all! Whoo Hoo! Now I must confess I am terrible at following directions when it comes to creativity. If you would like the exact science of how to do this I would follow the link to KoJo Designs. This is my general idea, personal attempt at a smaller version of the wreath.

For the base I used a piece of cardboard that came with a shirt my daughter was sent for her birthday. I knew I kept it for something! I used a small plate to trace the outer circle and this container for the inside.

Cutting out the inside circle was harder than I thought.

I picked this pretty but neutral paper for Missy.
I used spray adhesive to attach the base to the paper, then made little cuts all around it to fold over.

Hmm my inner circle is not very round. I don't mind it though.

Glued scraped of the same paper to clothespins (Contrasting would be cute too)

My biggest problem was spacing the clothespins. I should have marked where they went better.

Glued a ribbon for hanging

Clipped on the tea bags and hung.
It could also be a cute memo holder or something. I hope she likes it!

With havin so much content do you ever run into any
problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being stolen? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking
about making my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Many thanks

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite
justification appeared to be on the internet the simplest thing to be
aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the
whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.

Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

Hello there, I think your blog could possibly be having web browser compatibility issues.

When I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks
fine however when opening in Internet Explorer, it
has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
Apart from that, fantastic site!
