Boxes and Trivets with pressed Flowers

The papier-mâché boxes are painted with craft paint and decorated with pressed flowers and leaves which are glued on using medium glue lacquer.

1. Paint the lid of the box or the trivet with craft paint in a pastel colour.

2. Apply a generous layer of medium glue lacquer to the area on where you will apply the flowers. Lay the flowers on the glue lacquer. Spread glue lacquer on top to coat the flowers. Let it dry.

3. The trivet’s glass plate is then glued onto the flowers. Use a glue gun or just glue. Assemble the box lid and glue with a glue gun.
