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!
