Pressed Herb Cards for Mother's Day

Here is something easy you can make for your favorite Mom on Mothers Day. The picture shows leaves but you can really use any delicate cuttings (because they dry easily) Maidenhair fern & Goldenrod come to mind. Working on an ironing board, place leaves and or petals on top of three layers of plain newsprint, available at art supply stores. Place another sheet of newsprint on top. Press with an iron set at medium temperature until the plant cuttings turn slightly paler, about 2 minutes. Attach dried cuttings to card stock and spray with adhesive, let dry.
