After Wedding Flowers

Wondering what to do with your flowers after the wedding? You just spent a decent amount of money on your beautiful flowers and you are just going to toss them. Think again! Keep your bouquet for years without going the dusty, dried-flowers route.

Snip blossoms and lay them on newsprint.

Fold newsprint over to cover, and insert in a flower press (or between the pages of a phone book).

Leave them for 10 to 12 days, until dry and papery. Use tweezers to transfer the flowers to card stock and arrange.

Use tweezers to gently lift each blossom, and a paintbrush to apply a dot of glue to the underside, then press into place.

Let dry, and frame.

Not only do you have the memory but you have framed art for your new home!

Personalized Ribbon said...

Here's a tip if you are using Personalized Ribbon for a Wedding. Some personalized ribbon is single faced but make sure you use double faced beaded edge

ribbon 3/8th inch or 5/8 inch width ribbon. Which means the ribbon is shiny on both sides of the ribbon and won't fray at the edges when it is cut.It can

also be cost effective to use Personalized Wedding Ribbon by the roll uncut, then just cut it to the length

you need. A lot of wedding planners use personalized ribbon for Wedding Favors to add a touch of class and

sophistication. Your guests will surely notice the extra effort.
Good luck!
