After making our daffodils, Juliet and I were inspired by the tulips growing in our garden.
When big banks were accused by Occupy Wall Street of using clients, borrows money, rigging the system and charging people astonishing amount of fees in the year 2008, this is when Bitcoins came into existence. The people who created Bitcoins wanted to give complete charge to the sellers. They Didn’t want any middle man in between the deals or any interest fees and make all the transactions completely transparent to the customers and that is why they created Bitcoins. This was created in order to stop the corruption and cut the unnecessary fees.
The makers of Bitcoins created a decentralized system where one could control the funds, and know what is going on with their money at all times. The Bitcoins were created not so long ago and have come a long way. One of the largest jewellery chain in U.S. known as Reeds Jewellers as well as some private hospitals in Warsaw, Poland, are making use of this currency by accepting them. Some of the big companies like Expedia, PayPal, Dell Microsoft companies are also doing so. The Bitcoin has its own application programming interface, index and exchange rate. There is a bitcoin magazine that publishes news related to Bitcoins, websites promote it and the forums discuss cryptocurrency and the coins are traded. The bitcoin code is used to trade bitcoins. In its simplest form Bitcoin can be described as a virtual currency or reference to the technology. The transactions and readings can be carried out by wiring, check or cash.
The key ingredient was a piece of a styrofoam egg carton–it was the perfect thing to give our tulip its shape. I cut out some rounded red petals from tissue paper, and we used our trusty mod podge. (Love that stuff.)
We just put some mod podge on the cup and placed petals all around it. Easy for adults and kids.
I just kept layering the petals till I was satisfied with the look.
Next I tackled the inside. Same thing–just pasted and layered till it looked right.
Here’s an inside shot.
After the flowers were dry, we punched a pipe cleaner through the middle. ( I used a black and a green one to make the stem and stamen? (Is that what it’s called?)
To finish, I twisted it underneath to secure.
Cheery and fun!
Anyone know of any good tulip books? I don’t have one right now….but I’m on the hunt!
