I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I absolutely LOVED making the craft and video for this month.  Everything turned out so wonderful that I plan on making a ton more for gifts. Pressed Flower Coasters and Suncatchers make the perfect present for anyone. The sun catcher I made now blocks my view of my neighbor's bathroom. Horray! Beauty and function! Check out the latest Craftster Quickie to make a few of your very own.

The latest VIDEO

The supplies you will need are:
Variety of dried or pressed flowers
Copper tape
Industrial strength craft glue
Tweezers
Toothpicks
4x4 glass
Clips
Scissors

I bought my flowers online but how much fun would it be to collect your own from various walks and hikes you take throughout the year.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

These are beautiful! I love the idea of preserving flowers throughout the year this way. Maybe even with a little tag of when and where they're from Smiley

Aw, these are great! My dad was a stained glass artist, he used lots of pressed flowers in his work. I used to collect and press them for him. I still have a few of his pieces.
