1. one crate or thin wood scraps
2. wax paper
3. wildflowers of different varieties
4. stamps/stamp pad to apply words, phrases
5. 1 belt for closure or ribbon to tie
Please note: my thoughts here were to reuse, recycle and re purpose items I already had. You can also shop at your local thrift shop, flea or garage sale to find your wood supply before making a trip to the hardware store or lumber yard.
TAKE 2 pieces of crate boards and cut them in equal widths and lengths. Cut several pieces of cardboard same size. Measure and cut wax paper. Fold over like a book same size as wood and cardboard. In multiple layers layout wood, cardboard, wax paper.. and so on. Add wildflowers that you have gathered cut to any size you wish. Put inside your wax paper booklet. Put on top of cardboard. So, you'll end up with layers of flowers to be dried. Add a closure. I added a leather belt that I purchased at the flea for $1.00. Add some weights directly on top of your project.Look in your pantry for heavy weighted large can goods like crushed tomatoes. They come in handy. The process takes 2 days to dry. Use for different uses, crafts, stationary, art work and mixed media.
