A great way to keep a physical memory of a special day!


Material

  • 2 Sheets of A4 art paper
  • 3-4 Big books
  • 1 Handful of collected flowers & leaves

Method

  1. Spend a day out & keep an eye out for any special flowers or leaves (always ask permission before picking any flowers!)
  2. Trim flower stems and leaves and place between the two sheets of art paper ( you can use normal printing paper but art paper is a little thicker, softer and more absorbent)
  3. Place your paper between some heavy books and leave to sit for a few weeks! Once dried you can use them in craft or as decorations!

Notes

Some flowers are more suited to this than others, roses are perfect, moist flowers like frangipani not so much!
