🌺 Transparency film or cardstock

🌺 Mod Podge

🌺 Pressed flowers

🌺 Thin ribbon or tassel

How to Assemble

  1. Choose your base. If you would like a clear book mark, use transparency film, otherwise you can also use a coloured cardstock as your base. 
  2. Choose your flowers. You can buy prepressed flowers or you can use flowers you have previously pressed.
  3. Cut your base to your desired shape, typically a rectangle approximately 6” x 1.5”.
  4. Using a paint brush, brush Mod Podge onto the base, totally covering it.
  5. While the Mod Podge is still wet, lay out your flowers in a pleasing design onto the base.
  6. Apply 3 coats of Mod Podge, one at a time, over your flowers.
  7. Once the bookmark has dried, use a hole punch to add ribbon or tassel for a decorative touch.
