Send spring notes or invitations on cards decorated with dainty ferns and flowers. Select thin, delicate cuttings because they dry easily; we used maidenhair fern, goldenrod, and hydrangea.
- Very thin leaves or petal
- Card stock
- Spray adhesive
Working on an ironing board, place leaves and petals on top of three layers of plain newsprint, available at art-supply stores. Place another sheet of newsprint on top.
Press with an iron set at a medium temperature until the plant cuttings turn slightly paler, about 2 minutes.
Attach dried cuttings to card stock with spray adhesive, and let dry.
