Again, I hope that I'm doing this right. I dried the flowers by putting them face down on a sheet of newspaper right after I picked them. Make sure that the flowers are dry or they'll rot. If I couldn't press them right away I put them in a plastic bag and put them in a cooler or the refrigerator depending on where I was. Then put lots of sheets of newspapers on top before repeating the process. Next put a heavy weight on top so that the flowers are pressed flat. I used a board the width of the newspapers to keep the pressure even and put a BIG rock on top. It takes about 2 weeks to dry a batch.

This is the first time that I've posted a project so, please, have patience with me. I hope that I do it right. I decorated wooden boxes that I bought at Michaels and a Dollar Store as Christmas gifts for the people that I work with. I picked and pressed flowers and leaves last summer and fall from the place that we work. My boss loved it because it made the plants produce more flowers. Then I painted the boxes, applied Modge Podge, arranged the flowers and leaves. When they were dry I varnished them. I filled the boxes with candy and wrapped them in red and green tissue tied with raffia and handed them out. It was such a fun project.  I made 17 boxes. Not one person figured out why I was picking so many flowers last summer.





This last one I made for myself with flowers from work and my house and hiking.

You are truly amazing. That is the most beautiful and creative wedding that I've ever seen. I don't know how anybody could have pulled it off, but you sure did. You thought of everything. I hope that you have a wonderful marriage. Congratulations!

They're absolutely precious. I can see why you can't stop making more. I'd like to have a necklace made out of them.

I think that you're a kind and compassionate person to think of the elderly people. There are so many of them that have no one. I'm sure that your lovely gifts were graciously received and brought the recipients a lot of joy.

What a fun idea. I'd enjoy playing scrabble a lot more if I had one of those. It's too hard to sit still long enough to play a regualar game. Way to go!
