Default useing dried flowers

Hi All,
Does anyone have any experience with using dried flowers on their cards? I couldn't find any examples on the site, but maybe I am looking in the wrong place.

Haven't used them on cards before, but I have worked with dried flowers and they are very brittle. There is a type of preservation spray you can use (don't remember the name but it should be available at any craft store) that makes them a bit more flexible. I would think this is necessary in order to put them on cards, because normal handling would make them crumble otherwise.

Michelle Laycock seems to have several of these. She is very sweet. I'd send her a private message and ask her for help.

Default Dried flowers - help!

Hi,

I got a microwave flower press from Lee Valley and have dried a number of flowers. I want to use them on my cards, but can't figure out how to attach them to the cards without breaking them, and don't know how to preserve them so they don't fall apart.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Here is a way to make Pressed Flower Paper:

You'll need:

Pressed flowers
Waxed paper
Facial tissues
Tacky glue
Oven and Cookie sheet

What to do:

1: Preheat onev to 265 F. Line cookie sheet with waxed paper. Place pressed flowers on top in pleasing pattern. Split tissue into two plied; lay noe tissue ply over each half of waxed paper

2: Mix glue 1:1 with water; carefully apply to tissue with foam brush. Bake in oven for up to five mimtes, removing when paper becomes translucent and wrinkled.

You can find this in the April 2006 Paper made easy.
