Hi there! While at Michaels Crafts I found these very thin wood forms. With an idea in mind, I brought them home to pretty them up.
The papers were scrapbook papers and old note cards I had on hand. I sanded the forms with a very fine grit sandpaper til they were very smooth, used them as templates on the paper, used a glue stick on the wood, applied the paper, weighed them down to dry for an hour and let them sit overnight.
The next day I drilled a hole in one petal for a ring. On the back I wrote HDF, the year and the color name. In case you're wondering~they're Vikki Clayton's Pressed Petals, Old Maid of the Hive and Russian Sage. These were oh so much fun and turned out soooo sweet, I'll stop back and pick up a *BUNCH* more-LOL! Before long I'll have a whole bouquet of Floss Flowers!

What ya think dear stitchy friends, cute or what?

Tootles, Sue
