In partnership with http://www.FaveCrafts.com , I am pleased to present this video on how to make vintage pressed flower cards! For more free craft projects, video tutorials and craft tips, visit www.FaveCrafts.com .

In this tutorial I will show you how to make vintage looking pressed flower cards. This project
is very easy to make, yet it looks like you put a lot of effort into it!

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

» Materials List «

• Cardstock
• Pressed flowers
• Facial tissues
• Glue stick
• School glue (a.k.a. White glue)
• Water
• Plastic container for mixing
• Disposable brushes
• Ruler
• Scissors
• Optional: paper cutter

» Instructions «

• Determine the size of the card you want. Since my design involved a large pressed flower, I went for a pretty large card. My card measured 6" wide and 11" long, unfolded.
• Now fold your card in half and sooth out the fold.
• Lay out your pressed flower design. Use your glue stick to attach your pressed flowers.
• Time to dilute your glue! Mix 2 parts school glue with 1 part water in your plastic mixing container.
• Take a facial tissue and pull apart the plies until you are left with one thin ply.
• Lay your one ply tissue over the front of the card. Brush on your diluted glue. The wrinkles give the card a vintage look!
• After your card is dry, cut away any overhanging tissue. Your card is complete!
