Beautiful flower printing craft

Ever tried printing with flowers?

Dip and print – it couldn’t be easier. The flower stalks were like little fairy wands, dabbing paint onto the paper.

Little finger prints make great stems too (and who can resist putting putting their hands in the paint?)

    What a cheery, upbeat, simple-with-delightful results project. Printing projects give such immediate feedback. Makes the perfect invitation to consider other possibilities!!

    Cathy, this does look nice. Did you have to be quite gentle with the flowers? I’m thinking J might be a little too enthusiastic about the stamping. I guess I could always take the stem off and just let him use the flower head.

      Hi Kate. I guess it’s going to depend on the flowers you choose. We used chrysanthemums, which are pretty robust and have dense flower heads to take the paint and make a good print. The stems held up well too and we weren’t all that gentle – they were well dunked in the paint pots!
