I’m a pressed flower fanatic! What’s not to love about a slice of nature frozen in time? The love affair started when I was a child, and I’m thrilled that pressed flowers appear to be trending again.

Supplies

Note: The key to this tutorial is using transparent jar stickers. However, you can also use acrylic bookmarks and Mod Podge if you prefer.

Step 1: Peel open the stickers

To say I’m in love with these mason jar stickers is an understatement! They are so stinkin’ cute, as we like to say in my neck of the woods. The pack includes 20 or 40 stickers in five unique designs.

It feels silly to tell you to peel open these glassware stickers. However, peeling them open is the trickiest part of this whole tutorial. The stickers are super thin!

Gently lift the edge with your fingernail starting from the bottom corner of the jar shape. A little patience will go a long way.

Don’t peel the top layer off completely to make it easier to align the sticker later.

Step 2: Arrange pressed flowers inside the sticker

Place 4-5 small pressed flowers on the bottom layer of the sticker. The top layer has adhesive, so you’ll need to hold it open as you place the flowers.

As I mentioned, I love pressing my own flowers, but this set of pressed flowers is a great alternative. Plus, it includes a handy pair of tweezers.

It’s easy to rearrange the flowers before sealing the sticker shut. Once you seal it, you won’t be able to make any changes.

Tip

Avoid layering the flowers inside the sticker. You want to minimize the bulk so it seals properly and won’t buckle.

Once you finish arranging your flowers, carefully press the top of the sticker down to seal the sticker shut.

Step 3: Add tassels to the pressed flower bookmarks

Using a hole punch, make a small hole in the top of your jar sticker. It may take extra force to punch through both layers of the sticker.

To complete the bookmark, add a coordinating tassel or ribbon through the hole. I picked up a wonderful set of tassels that included all colors of the rainbow. I see more bookmark projects on the horizon for me!
