Close-To-White Wednesday


Does neutral count?

Yesterday was an especially difficult day.  Nothing bad happened really...just one of those days where you just want to go home after a long day at work, then groceries, and just relax.  So while Mr RRP was doing some computer work, I sat in the comfy chair next to him and made these.

Can you guess what they're made of????


 Take a guess......

    

Barb has a cool tutorial at Treasures from the Heart on how to make these rosettes from........

TEA BAGS!

    

Aren't they just the cutest things?!


This weekend I hope to work on 2 birthday gifts and 1 bridal shower gift, and I hope to have enough of these made to use.  There are a lot of ways these can be used:  cards, pictures, journals, collage art...
The possibilities are endless!
Thank you, Barb, for the great tutorial and your endless inspiration!

I hope you have a perfectly wonderful White Wednesday!
Drop by Faded Charm and check out more!

Warmly,
Lori

Hi Lori,
I love them!! I have made a lot of those roses out of tissue paper, but never out of tea bags. What a cute idea! Happy WW!!

Lori,
Your little tea bag roses are wonderful! Great, great job!
Don't you just love using things that would have otherwise been thrown away?

I'm going to borrow one of your pics and show my friends what a nice job you did. OK? =)

Thanks for telling them where you got the idea too.

Blessings on your day,

Barbara Jean

Sweet little rosettes. I found coffee filters here that are already that stained color, not white, so used those to try and make some roses ... but that was before I saw Barb's tutorial. I must try again. Yours turned out great. Many blessings, Tammy

These are just precious!! I joined the Easter Basket Sway at Rhae's and these little roses would be so cute on a basket!

I love your tags you made a couple of posts down too! I bought some last spring when we went to visit our son in Calif and I can't find those tags for anything!

I can't believe I haven't been following- thought you were on my list but have missed a ton of your posts so now for sure I am following-
