This is almost a “cheats” way to pressing flowers. It is quick and easy and fun. The children love it as it is a surprisingly tactile craft. It may even encourage a little reading, or you can make these for school books and friends. Materials: Small flowers & leaves. Again, we tried not to pick any “real” flowers, but just some blossom off a plentiful bush, some contrasting little green leaves and the much abundant Daisy. Masking tape. Colour card. Sticky back plastic or contact paper. Hole punch. Ribbon. 1. Collect your flowers, we then arranged them by colours in little dishes.
2. Cut out a piece of contact paper and tape it, sticky side up, onto the table. It is a bit fiddly, due to stickiness of paper, but persevere
4. Carefully peel off masking tape and stick card down
5. Cut to size. Punch a hole and add some ribbon. Done!
Don't you think they look pretty? We certainly had fun making them. And they made a lovely little gift for Granny!
