Pressed Flower Gift Cards
July 18th, 2012 by Craftylocks

We have always enjoyed making these. So special to give a card that you have made by hand and also uses flowers picked from your garden.

You do not need many flowers, even grasses and weeds can make a lovely picture. If you do not have a proper flower press, or if like me you have two but cannot find them, just press some flowers between some absorbent paper in a telephone book under a heavy box. We use cartridge paper for our absorbent paper. As soon as we finished pressing our flowers, I found the flower presses!

Cut up and fold some lightweight card to make some simple cards, and then carefully arrange the pressed flowers and glue them onto the card with just little bits of glue.

Hi Emma,
Funny, I saw your comment and thought I should press some more flowers but I wonder where the flower presses are again?! At least I can always find lots of books ;). Have fun with pressing your foliage and flowers.

Isn’t that always the way – do without and then find what you needed?! 😉 These are lovely – I definitely want to give them a try!

Dawny, some may say the problem could be too much stuff – but I tend to ignore him when he says that;-).
