Finally, I came up with what I thought would be the perfect use for my pressed and dried flowers. You see, I'm a bit of a sentimentalist and I look for any excuse to relive our wedding day over and over....and over.
So, I came up with the idea to frame the flowers. Surprisingly, Pinterest didn't show me any similar crafts so I went it alone on this one.
So, I bought a simple black frame, cut out the correct size of acid-free scrapbook paper (in a plain pale blue) and then printed off a copy of our vows. I used glue tape (greatest crafting invention ever) to affix the vows to the centre of the frame and surrounded it with as many dried flowers as I could fit without it looking too cluttered. These I also affixed with the glue tape.
The flowers still hold hints of the colours they used to be. The dried blue hydrangeas are my favourite.
Now, I have a lovely reminder of our wedding day (other than all the photos I have) and I feel like I am getting extra use out of the flowers I spent a fortune on.
One of my favourite crafts to date, and so simple and lovely.
