Step one: find fresh shed leaves, flowers, petals etc Or harvest fresh from the plant ( though do not take too much, be kind in your harvest)
Step two: allow them to dry a bit if they are damp or covered in dew
Step three: find a thick heavy book, open to the center…. place paper towels on either page and lay out your foliage on one side.
Step 4: close the book, make sure there is enough weight to firmly press your foliage down…. and allow to sit and dry for a few months
After a few months, they will be preserved with most color still in tact and ready for use.
Perfect for card making, decoupage, mixed media, resin, framing…..
a simple way to keep summer plants all year round <3
