Vintage Pressed Flower Cards

By:

This video tutorial shows you just how easy it is to make vintage pressed flower cards. If you make your own birthday cards and want a simple idea that looks professional, try these. 

Materials:

  • 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:

  1. 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.
     
  2. Now fold your card in half and sooth out the fold.
     
  3. Lay out your pressed flower design. Use your glue stick to attach your pressed flowers.
     
  4. Time to dilute your glue! Mix 2 parts school glue with 1 part water in your plastic mixing container.
     
  5. Take a facial tissue and pull apart the plies until you are left with one thin ply.
     
  6. Lay your one ply tissue over the front of the card. Brush on your diluted glue. The wrinkles give the card a vintage look!
     
  7. After your card is dry, cut away any overhanging tissue. Your card is complete!
