In the summer, my friend Kat sent me some pressed flowers from her garden. I made a little picture in a frame with them and it has been on my fireplace ever since.
This week, another of my dearest friends, Madlyn, sent me some pressed flowers from her garden in America. I had some flowers already in my flower press from the summer when Elle and i went on an adventure to the abbey gardens and picked some flowers.
I decided today to make another picture from these flowers. Madlyn sent a little pouch especially for Elle so she made her own little pictures.
For the main picture, i found a frame at the pound shop and used a piece of cream card as the background. I then arranged the flowers as i wanted and stuck them down with a dab of glue and then put in the frame. It is so simple and easy and looks wonderful hung up, especially in a little girls room or babies nursery!
I found some tiny canvases in the pound shop a while back and i was saving them for the right project and this was it. I put all of Elle's flowers in a bowl for her and a few extras out of my flower press and she arranged them and glued them onto her canvases and they look wonderful! Don't you think? She is getting some book shelves in her room this month, so i shall have them sitting proudly on her shelves.
You will need:
-A frame, any size but i used a 12x8 for this one and a 10x8 for the first one i did.
-A piece of card. You can use paper if you wish also but i found card was easier to stick on and sturdier,
1. Arrange the flowers on the card how you wish.
2. Place only a small dab of glue in the centre of where the flower will go. I find this looks nicer when the sides of the petal/flower are still free so they dont look so flat.
3. Once the glue is dry, hang in the frame and then place whereever you would like to make look pretty!
Keep you eyes peeled tomorrow, as i shall be pack with an AMAZING giveaway for you all from one of my favourite online shops!
