How to make Pressed Flower bookmarks

HowtoBookmarks

 

Making pressed flower bookmarks is fun and quite easy.  Above are the basic instructions.  You can make them and take them to a copy center where they can laminate them for you.

Figure out how many bookmarks you can fit on the rice paper, leaving enough space between for cutting to the final size.  Then lay out your pressed flowers and anything else you might want to add.  Tack them down with minimal glue (you can use Elmer’s or any paper adhesive glue).  They are now ready to be laminated.  Or if you don’t want to laminate them you can put clear contact paper over the work.  Be very sure where you want to lay that paper as the flowers will want to jump up; so it is good to start at one end and roll it over eliminating any air bubbles.  Punch a hole near the top and add a tassel and VOILA!
