Im­pressed with flow­ers

Chic & Country - - Hand Made -

Win­ter may be a time when na­ture sleeps but if you col­lect your favourite plants and flow­ers (small and wild are best) and dry them or press them, you can cre­ate your own beau­ti­ful and orig­i­nal botan­i­cal com­po­si­tion. How to do it

Place the flow­ers in be­tween sheets of blot­ting pa­per. Then sand­wich it all with pieces of card­board.

Use a flower press or a pile of very heavy books! The flow­ers are dried in 2 or 3 weeks. They will be frag­ile so use tweez­ers to put them in po­si­tion and then ap­ply tape to keep them in place. Use a sheet of black con­struc­tion pa­per as the back­ground.
