How To: Make a Pressed Plant Brooch

  Plants and flowers are quite pretty, but they dissapear so quickly. Unless you press them of course! A great way to display your pressed leaves and flowers is by making a pressed plant brooch.



  Here is a tutorial on how to make your own pressed plant brooch.  This is a great thing to make for yourself or as a small gift for a friend.




and now...Voila! Your very own flower or leaf brooch. One tip: the balsa wood can be flimsy, so if you want a sturdier brooch, glue two pieces together instead of using one layer.
