Instead of letting them get all wilted, I put them between some paper towels, then pressed them in a phone book. Then I made this:
I had all the supplies on hand, other than the $1.00 cell phone case, so I wound up spending very little money on this project.
Want to make one of your own?
Here's what you'll need:
Dried flowers (your own or store-bought)
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
Phone case (mine is from the dollar store)
1. First, lay out the flowers on the phone in a way that you like. Don't worry if there's overlap. You can trim that off later.
2. Spread a thin layer of Mod Podge on the cover. Place the flowers down according to your plan. Flatten them out as much as possible. If you want a little glitter, you can sprinkle that now OR you can sprinkle it before you put the flowers down. Your choice.
3. Snip off any loose stems or pieces hanging over the edges.
4. Next spread the Dimensional Magic over the whole thing, being careful to keep it from dripping down the sides. If that does happen, you can remove it with a Q-tip dipped in nail polish remover. The Dimensional Magic forms a hard clear coating over the whole thing for a smooth surface.
5. It will look a little cloudy at this point, but it dries clear.
6. Let it dry according to directions, and before you know it, you'll have a sweet and pretty phone case!
