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.
