Brightly Colored Roses and Carnations

These brightly colored Carnations and Roses came from the Wedding Reception Table Decorations. I snitched a few to make this gift for a very special young Ohio bride!

Pansies Never Fail!

I thought I'd take a break from the Bridal and Memorial Art to post a simple and inexpensive craft idea! This is a 5x7 framed pressed flower art picture. I used pretty scrapbook paper and printed the Bible Verse using my printer. Then I arranged Fern, Sweet Alyssum, Pansies and Tendrils from Pea Plants...yes, the kind you eat! Pansies might be the easiest and most successful flower to press! Try it! Just tuck them into a phone book for about a week or two! Pansies are for sale in the Spring and again in the Fall, as they prefer cool weather. If you would rather not press your own flowers, there are many websites that sell flowers that are already pressed! C'mon! Try this! You can do this! :)
