Flower Press Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed.

Sharp eyed readers of my blog will have noticed that I made two flower presses last week.  And I'm giving one away!
They are covered in pictures of flowers, and are sealed with PVA glue.  The prize is for the covered placemats - which you can use as placemats rather than a flower press if you want, but I'm not including the bull clips to join it all together.

How to enter:

  • Leave a comment on this post, telling me your favourite flower
  • If you're a follower, please leave a second comment letting me know.
  • The winner will be chosen using my trusty 'scrolling up and down the list of comments with my eyes closed' random method.
  • I'm happy to ship internationally
  • This giveaway is open until 18 October 2013, and a winner will be emailed by 21 October - so please make sure I have some way to contact you if your comment wins!

Flower Press

P and J spent last week with my parents as it was school holidays here.  And it was the perfect time to make J's flower press for her birthday.

I cut up the rose pictures from the book I bought, and then glued them onto the placemats with PVA glue.  I then covered them with another layer of PVA to seal them.  The original tutorial called for modge podge, but PVA is what I had, so that is what I used.

I am pretty happy with how they turned out.

However, you can see that there is a little bit of bubbling under the paper.  I suspect its because I didn't put enough glue on the bottom.  I'm still really happy with them, and I really hope that J will like them.
