Simple first time floral design projects for girls
Pressing flowers can be a fun and easy artistic project that girls of all ages can enjoy! Have her choose a few flowers that she likes and lay them down on a piece of parchment paper without any of them touching. Once she has laid all her flowers out, help her carefully place a second piece of parchment paper on top and then place a heavy book or object on them to help press the flowers flat. Make sure you begin this project on a table or part of a counter that you won’t need to access for a while as it takes several days for them to fully dry. This project requires patience, but don’t worry, peeking is allowed!! After about 10 days the flowers should be dry and flat. At this point the possibilities are endless! They can be glued onto a bookmark, attached to a homemade card for a loved one or they can be displayed in a picture frame or a shadow box to name a few ideas.
