Flower Decor Craft

One of the things my husband gave me for my birthday were some Chrysanthemums.  I've been wanting to have some plants for the longest time but somehow I couldn't make up my mind what kind to get.

After a day though, one of the stems broke off.    Yes, I did research how to care for them but still, this flower had its own plans.

As they say, "Waste not, want not" so even a tiny flower shouldn't be put to waste!

I got some kitchen cleaning sheets and sandwiched the flower stems inside 2 sheets.  I was careful to lay it flat on the sheet so it would dry nicely with as little air passing through the sheets as possible.

I could just imagine these in a bookmark or picture frame or something.

There they go tucked away in a book for later use.

That same book had a few flowers I've been drying.  So let's take a peek how we will use them...

So, getting some packaging material from a gift we got last Christmas, I layout all the flowers inside the little "window".

Do you like it?

Let's see, maybe we can do it another way!

How about this?  I encased my artwork with the dried flowers to add a bit of interest.

Which style do you like best?

I sure hope you enjoyed today's craft!
