Making a pressed flower frame
First we are going to make the pressed flowers. You can do this with a flower press, and if you don’t have one, you can do it with a stack of thick books. Place the flowers between two napkins and place them between the books. After three weeks you can take the flowers out.
Next we’re going to frame the pressed flowers. For one frame, you need two identical photo frames. The cardboard that serves as a background of a photo frame, will be replaced for the glass of the other photo frame. This makes the frame transparent on both sides! But before you place the glass on top of the other, place some pressed flowers in between. That way they are visible extra nice!
