Surprise family and friends and create this wonderful handmade card in 7 easy steps. You can change the design to suit your occasion.
You will need the following which can be found from craft retailers;
- Blank greeting card and envelope
- MOD Podge (waterbase sealer/glue/finish)
- Selection of fresh flowers
- Selection of hardback books
- Piece of kitchen roll
- Paint brush
Step 1- Open your hardback book to the centre pages and lay the piece of kitchen roll down.
Step 2- Pick the petals from your fresh flowers and lay these onto the kitchen roll.
Step 3- Gently shut the book and store in a warm place for 3-5 days until the petals have dried out.
Step 4- Draw an ’80’ onto your blank greeting card in pencil.
Step 5- Add thin brush stokes of MOD Podge over the design and gently remove the petals and lay these onto the glue (you may wish to use tweezers).
Step 6- Once you have finished positioning your petals brush a thin layer of MOD Podge over the design. This will dry clear.
Step 7- Once your design has dried your beautiful handmade card is ready to send!
