Drying Viola Flowers

Future nature art charms

image

I cut the stems off and place the flowers face down on a piece of folded white paper

image

I place the paper inside an old heavy book to dry for at least 3 weeks

image

The papers are in this Complete Works of Shakespeare

image

Letitia Baldridge's manners book is placed on top for added weight

image

These are some 4-leaf clovers that have finished drying

image

I store the dried material in the papers inside an unsealed cello envelope until I'm ready to work with them
