  • Arrange the flowers and leaves at the top of the paper towel and cover the paper towel at the top of the leaves and flowers. Make sure that they are not too close so that they won’t stick to each other.

  • Place the heavy books on top of the paper towel or you can place it in the middle of the book pages.

  • Leave the flowers and leaves for a week to remove the excessive water on them and make them flatter.

  • Carefully leave the book from the top of the paper towel and open them carefully to make the flowers and leaves in a good condition.

  • Arrange the flowers and leaves on the glass frame and if they are already in a good arrangement; glue them down using the clear drying glue.

  • Add the second glass on top of the flowers and leaves and place them on the frame.

  • After you have done, you can start hanging them on the wall or you can use it as the decoration near the window or on the top of your cabinet.

This decoration will freshen up your room and make the atmosphere of the room warmer. Or you can make them dried completely by leaving them for at least a month since the dried flowers and leaves will add the vintage atmosphere for the decoration.
