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!
