I finally pulled them out today and arranged them into a botanical wall hanging, using an inexpensive frame, textured cardstock, and just a bit of glue.
Included are cherry blossoms, poppies, gingko leaves (from a trip I haven't posted yet), and other wildflowers. Many of the blooms have faded in color, but some are still surprisingly vibrant.
I have plenty of pressed flowers left over to put onto cards and onto gift wrap, tags, and other projects. The card shown here had to be glittered because I was overly enthusiastic with the glue, but I rather like the slightly fancified version, too.
I've always liked seeing botanical prints hung as decor, but this particular hanging will also remind me of our many trips to see flowers this year--some close to home, some further afield. Quite nice.
