Pressed Flowers Bookmarks

We went a walk a month ago and my daughter picked every flower she saw. We ended up with a nice variety and we put them in a phone book to dry them.

all flat and pretty.
but then I thought…what are you supposed to do with a pile of pressed flowers.
I took strips of this
and filled it with flowers
and I just kept adding tape over tape until it was sturdy and then I punched a hole
Then I added a ribbon
pretty little *almost free* bookmark
I made a few of these
and on an unrelated school note:
then I thought…what else could I use these flowers for….
I had two pieces of glass
and smooshed some between them
and yes the most awful picture..you try taking a picture of glass.
Thought they would be pretty as a coaster or centerpiece
(I would actually use plexiglass if I was going to do this again.)
then I whipped out some cards…couldn’t let all those smooshed weeds go to waste!

once again I just used packaging tape to keep the flowers from getting destroyed
