They are gorgeous!  I love the technique of making the flowers look 3-d!

good idea!  I need to make some paper for a special project and I need that reddish color!

oh--and update:  I checked the ingredients of the tea because I suspected it might have raspberry in it--NOPE!

only hibiscus leaves and flowers...so all the variations are coming from one plant source only!

What I love about making paper is that you always get surprised!  I like using natural dyes from onions, teas, coffee, etc. When I make paper, I throw in flowers, leaves, seeds, beads, whatever...it is just too much fun...I have a very simple picture frame and some leftover black screening that I use and a cat litter box Grin

btw--my crabapple tree is also blooming...I don't even bother drying flowers and stuff because they get wet anyway and dry out with the paper...not sure if that is the proper way to do it or not, but that it what I have been doing for years!...koolaid also makes a cool dye...

Would you like some hibiscus leaves?  I used it to decorate paper but I plan on using it to make paper as well--I have tons since hubby drinks it everyday for high blood pressure!

I actual use a salve made of cayenne pepper to relieve pain from arthritis...so I can see how nettles would work as well...I just watched a youtube video of picking and eating raw nettles...can't wait until the fog lifts so I can go foraging!!

I think the little ears will sell quickly but you might need to be sure your cute model is there to show them off!

I would say $2-$3 a pair is fair...put them high and see the reaction...you can always go lower or do a 2 for $5 thing...like if two little girls are there together or something (little girls love doing things with their best friends!)...

v3nu5--your body might just be telling you that you need a break!  I sometimes go go go and then collapse, so I need to take it slow and easy!  Just hang with us... Smiley  you will get your mojo and energy back!

Thank you for the wealth of information!

I am going to survey my property as I believe I have this growing (and I have avoided it because of the stings!)....I am quite intrigued now to try it--you make it sound so yummy!
