Pressed Pansy Cards

Source: Martha Stewart Living, April 1998


To create personalized stationery, apply pressed pansies to handmade cards or to notepaper and matching envelopes. Pansies pressed on their stems work especially well for this project.

Before you start, learn how-to Press Pansies.


  • Pansies and violas, or other dried flowers

  • Medium- to heavy-weight paper or blank premade cards

  • Bone folder or pencil

  • Tweezers

  • Small paintbrush

  • Clear-drying craft glue


  1. Use or create cards in colors that complement your pressed flowers. If creating your own, make either a single-fold or accordion-style card, using a bone folder or the edge of a pencil to make sharp creases.

  2. Arrange flowers on a spare sheet of paper as desired.

  3. Use a pair of tweezers to carefully lift each flower; with a small paintbrush, dab the back of each with a bit of craft glue. Affix flowers to the card one at a time. Allow to dry before moving or touching.
