More Tea Bag Roses??






What do you do with aaaaalll these tea bag roses?
(Many more than 3!)

Make bouquets!!
(tutorial for my Tea Bag Roses)



You'll need:
Tea Bag Roses
small piece of cheesecloth
little ribbon
glue gun


Instructions:
Cut about any shape of cheesecloth,
big enough to lay your roses on and a little to wrap around.

Lay the roses on,
hot glue together.
Wrap the cheesecloth around to the front.

Tie your little ribbon or lace on.
Wallah!
Instant bouquet!
Now try it with 5 roses. My fave.



I love these as little token gifts,
added to package tops, or you could even
give them with a tiny piece of chocolate.
Who could ask for more than a bouquet of roses, and candy? =)

These little roses are also sweet glued on top of little
match boxes covered with paper.
(also cute with little pearls or gems tucked in)
Not shown.






And we are tooting out horn about opening up
Tea & Treat areas at the store.

Bouquet of roses from a friend for our new adventure,
and 2 year anniversary celebration.


One of our little seating areas.
Maybe I should make this the Paris corner.
Will need to come up with some more 'Frenchy' stuff I guess. =)

OK, my second time arounds, nifty thrifty,
and Trash to Treasure, are the recovered chairs.
Fabric from a garage sale.
They aere curtains,lined no less.
Great deal since the chair seats were bright orange!!


Pleas go visit these other great blogs and see what everyone else is doing!

Thanks for coming by.

Smiles and Blessings

Sweet greetings from Frog Hollow Farm! What a cute idea, and I really love using them to jazz up a little gift wrapping. I was thinking they'd look great on a swag of some kind - like in evergreen branch roping or swag. Thanks for sharing! Ciao, bella!

Those are the sweetest bouquets! We have a couple of rose bushes in our garden, and I might just have to pick and dry some to make it! Thank you for sharing:)
