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!
