    Canvas to-Shadow box. Well hello!

    This is how I dry my flowers.One wall of my craft room is almost filled. I tye ribbons around them and they become a beautiful decoration in and of themselves I love to make wreaths feel it is a natural talent. only the same kind of flowers go in a bundle and I arrange them while still damp . Roses are my favorite. I pull all dead leaves off til I am down to the beautiful bud. Both preparing, drying and using them to perfection is something I truly love to do...
