I first saw this idea (called "Flower Fairies") in the June/July 2010 issue of Family Fun magazine. I instantly saw it as a great way to use the flowers Ava and I have been gathering and pressing [see post] over this spring and summer. We made our flower girl into a card for Grandma.
First I used a black pen to draw the girl on cardstock. Then Ava brushed decoupage glue on the paper and we began placing the pressed flowers on the card. That's it. The flower girl is so cute (but not cuter than my wonderful girl, of course).
