Making Flowers from Flowers!!!!

I'm all for RECYCLING!!!!
My daughter Kelly, gave me this bouquet of flowers and they were died daisies.  I dried and pressed each flower petal.  Then took a small piece of water color paper and cut it in a circle the size of a nickel.  Then I took each daisy petal at a time and created the flower.  Then took another daisy flower and glued it on top of that.    WOW.......I'm having so much fun making flowers out of recycled flowers!!!!!

Making Birch House Bird Houses

I've been making my birch bark bird houses for my dried garden flower creations.  It takes five stages to make them, and these are in stage 3.
