    Hi all, I've finally had the time to reformat a hub - I came over from Squidland. It's taken me 2 days. I would love some feedback so I can continue with the others and not miss something major.
    Thanks very much

      This is a great hub! It is informative you show your expertise with your photos and the tips you provide.

      Love all the photos you provide - make sure you have asked the people if you have permission to use their photos. I have a feeling that if you ask, since you aren't taking the info and providing links, people would be happy to say yes.

      My suggestions, since I can never leave anything alone - change thenester to The Nester, so it doesn't look like a typo.

      You move on to talk about felt and tissue paper flowers without a transition - I think it is okay to leave there, but maybe you can say something like, once you've used up your coffee filters, try tissue or felt...
      Also, I think you should add a conclusion that sums up everything you have included so people have a reminder of what they saw. Maybe add a poll to see if anyone has ever made these before, or maybe ask a more controversial question  like is it classy or trashy?  Ask for feedback to encourage comments.

      You have this as the first sentence:

      "Tutorials and patterns to make flowers out of coffee filters"

      I suggest that sentence should be in your summary instead.   It doesn't read well where it is, and looks as though it should be a sub-title.

      I'm guessing this Hub originally had Amazon capsules for the materials needed to make the flowers? If so, put them back in.  There's no need to be scared of using Amazon - the new guidelines specifically state that it's OK to have Amazon capsules for materials for craft Hubs.    Just remember that you must always have at least one paragraph of text between your Amazon capsules and you'll be fine.

        This is not correct.  You may use two or three Amazon capsules in a row, if appropriate.  Go to the blog post about spam and look at example # 3 under 'OK Product Hubs' where you will find groups of two and of three Amazon capsules in a row on that Hub, without text in between:

          I find that interesting because ever since the new filter came out, I've come across lots of people who've got the "spammy" warning - and if they separate the capsules it solves the problem.

            Maybe you changed something else on your Hub at the same time.

              It wasn't me personally, I've never had that warning.  Just several other people whom I've helped out.

          Thank you, Writer Fox. I'll probably play it safe.
          I appreciate your time.

        Thank you, Marisa
        I have changed my 1st sentence. and thanks to you and Millionaire tips for the idea of a summary - don't know why I never thought of that! Interesting about the Amazon tips.
        I appreciate your help.
