Remember I dried some flowers?
Voici, the dried sweet peas.
I laminated a bunch and decided to make bookmarks,
will use my flower punch and lots of sweet ribbon.

Hugs for a lovely new week!

  33. hello darling saskia!

    i love anything having to do with dried flowers....and this takes me back to my days on the farm, when i used to go out walking in the fields and pick all kinds of pretty wild flowers and then take them back home and stick them into the phone book!

    bookmarks, cards, I did all of this..and also glueing flowers all around the matting in a frame makes for a visually interesting project tooo!
    ciao bella
    have fun!

  34. A lovely idea!! I am of the opinion that you can never have too many bookmarks!!

  35. The flowers are beautiful and your bookmark is wonderful. I love sweet peas. I consider them precious. Now I must enjoy more of your posts.

  36. Very beautiful!
    I have a bookmark in one of my books I read daily, that has pressed wild flowers, made by my middle daughter in school one year (for Mother's Day). I cherish it! :)

  37. Saskia, you chose the perfect name for your blog...everytime I come by, I get the feeling you are full of JOY!

  38. Lovely! It is so old fashioned to dry flowers I love it!

  43. Oh Saskia,
    This is so wonderful...I was looking through an old box of "keepsakes", and found my childhood bible. There were a few pansies tucked between the pages...they were very crispy, but still intact...sweet memories....smilin' rosie
