Preserving Flowers: Dried & Pressed Floral Designs for Every Season
It all begins with dried blooms and foliage, a container or base form, a few tools, and a beautiful idea: the result is an elegant, long-lasting creation worthy of decorating any room. These projects reveal the possibilities for creating gorgeous pressed designs from a garden of silica-and air-dried flowers and plants. Discover just how simple it can be to amass a supply of dried plant materials using easy techniques for drying and pressing, and how to frame the flowers or embellish them with everything from candles to seashells. The exquisite items include wreaths, ornaments, displays, greeting cards, coasters, photo albums—even a scrapbook page.
