DIY Pressed Flower Project!


Howdy friends, Lindsay here again with a fun project: Microwave pressed Flowers! First I want to show you a card made with the results featuring the dress-form stamp from Lost Coast Designs:


Don't neglect the inside of the card! I put a tine envelope I made with my 3"x3" kreate-a-lope inside so a note can be inserted and the card can be reused since there is no need to write in it!


OK, are you ready for some videos? I have 3! First off how to press flowers in your microwave. All you need is flowers, a sheet of paper, a paper towel and a glass or ceramic tile or a flat bottomed dish like a pie plate. Make sure whatever you use is flat with no ridges on it because it needs to press the flowers.

Wasn't that easy? Now grab your stamps, colored pencils, glue, cardstock and ink and let's make a card!

But wait, there's more! You will end up with single tiny flowers that you don't know what to do with, they are perfect for envelope seals, here's how to make them:

I hope I have inspired you to do some crafting this weekend and preserve some of those beautiful end of summer flowers before frost gets them. Thanks for stopping by and as always happy crafting!
