Love for weeds you say?
Naturally I had to make a post today!
The origin of National Weed Appreciation day is unknown. However, the acknowledgment of the benefits and value of weeds can be traced back to history. Dandelions, which are common garden weeds, remained an important component of traditional Chinese medicine for at least a thousand years. Dandelion roots and leaves were used as a tonic to remove toxins from the bloodstream to improve the function of the digestive system. The plants were also appreciated for their beauty and were used to make dye.
I named my blog and my craft shop after this adorable yellow flower because I love it’s look, it’s symbol of simplicity in life, and they are different than what most perceive as beauty, and of course they are stubborn and strong, blooming and thriving in just about any condition!
IN A WORLD FULL OF FLOWERS
BE A DANDELION
Dandelion Root tea is one of my favourite teas ever!
I love the greens of dandelions in salads too, however I am yet to utilize the actual flower in food but I want to badly.
Do you know how hard it is to find faux dandelions? I had to order a bunch from wish, I just could not find them anywhere!
The same goes for crafts, all I seem to find is the seeding type of dandelions, while the fluffy version of these flowers is adorable also, yellow in bloom is what I enjoy the most.
I designed this dandelion card for giving, for no reason at all but to brighten someone’s day
In Design Space you will need to upload the png and contour out each piece, assemble it and size it all down to approximately 6.75inches high and 4.15 inches wide
You will also need a rectangle 10 inches wide by 7 inches high for the card itself
