We live in a very green area of Rotterdam. While the weather is still nice, wild flowers bloom profusely here on the roadsides and along the streets. So we're going to pick wild flowers first, we will look for the most beautiful ones. Preferably without aphids :)) Last week we made a flower press, which we would like to use. A picture frame with beautiful dried wild flowers will remind us of summer, during dark, bleak winter days!
How to make a dried flower picture frame
We've picked beautiful wild flowers.
Open the press and place two sheets of kitchen paper inside.
Place the flowers on top, press gently open.
Put fresh paper on top and arrange more flowers on it.
Another layer of flowers and we're done.
Cover the flowers with paper and cardboard.
Put the top on and twist the screws into the holes.
The flowers have dried.
We remove them all from the press.
Remove the packaging from the picture frame.
Open the picture frame.
Trace the passe partout.
Cut out the card stock.
Stick the flowers on the cardstock.
Place the cardstock in the frame and close it.
Find a nice spot for the picture frame.
