What You’ll Need:

-Mod Podge

-Pressed Fowers

-Scissors

-Paper

-Paintbrush

-Photo Frame

1. Find a piece of paper that you would like to use as the background for your flowers (I like to re-use paper from old books).

2. Cut the paper with your scissors so that it will fit into the frame (just trace the paper that is already inside of the frame).

3. Take your pressed flowers and arrange them onto the paper. Stick them to the paper by applying some clear-drying Mod Podge (with your paintbrush) to the flower(s). Stick the flower(s) to the paper.

4. Carefully fit your creation back into your frame! (That easy.)
