Pressed Flower Projects!

Hello friends! I was really in the mood for spring after the snowstorm we got Friday, luckily I had a package of beautiful pressed flowers from Greetings of Grace to play with!

I wanted to try a few projects that would showcase the beauty of these expertly pressed flowers and also appeal to different skill levels. I decided to start off with a simple to make bookmark, then make an intermediate greeting card and then as a challenge use them on a slick surface like the ceramic mug and pitcher. Watch the video to learn how!

Let me know in the comments if you would like the full alcohol marker coloring tutorial for the flower fairy and I can upload that for you.

Pressed flowers are beautiful on paper crafts like cards, bookmarks and scrapbook pages but also lovely on home décor items like frames and vases.  I encourage you to try pressing your own flowers but for variety and ease consider the beautiful pressed flowers available at Greeting of Grace too.
