Pressing Wildflowers is Wonderful

Welcome to the sunny August days and the warm summer nights!  Are you a blogger, too? Join in the month long celebration of creation going on at 'August heART' (Click on the logo > > >



In case you didn't already know how simple and delightful dried flowers can be, let's share a quickie project!


1. Collect some flowers.
2. Spread flowers on a sheet of waxed paper
3. Cover with another sheet of waxed paper
4. Cover with paper towel
5. Iron them on a medium setting and take your time





How easy is that?



















I love sharing these hydrangea blooms in the August heART blog party!!!
















You just pressed some wildflowers.

Wonderful!
