You Will Need:
- Colorful flowers or plants
- Water Color Paper (or other rough, acid free paper)
- Paper Towel
- Hard Work Surface (a wooden cutting board will due)
- Acrylic Finishing Spray (optional)
- Gather all of the needed materials and set up your work area. Make sure you’re using a hard surface, which you don’t mind denting or damaging.
- After you set up your work area, take a walk outside and pickup a variety of vibrant colored flowers, leaves, and plants. The more colorful the better.
- Now that you’ve collected an assortment of plants, trim any excess or unattractive parts. Arrange the plants on your sheet of water color paper.
- Cover your plants and water color paper with several sheets of paper towel. The paper towel will protect the plants and adsorb excess moister as you hammer.
- This step is optional. Trace the top of the paper towel with a pen. Mark where the plants lie underneath You can use this as a guide while hammering. If you think you’ll remember where you placed the plants, you can skip ahead to the next step.
- Now, start hammering. Begin with gentle taps until you feel as if the plant is somewhat embedded into the paper. Then, pound a little harder. Make sure to hammer the entire plant. Be patient, this may take awhile. Keep hammering for about three minutes. Then, check your progress by slowly peeling back the paper towel. If the plant is printed on the paper towel, you can remove it from the paper.
- Slowly peel the plant matter off of your paper. If it sticks, let it dry for a bit. After it dries, the plants should chip off easily.
- After the plants are removed, take a look at your print. Examine how it turned out and make changes as necessary.
After you create a number of printed pages, decide on how you’ed like your invitations to look. Decide on how you’ed like to fold the invites and how you’ed like to inscribe them. You can inscribe your invites by hand. Or, inscribe your invites with a custom stamp. Have fun coming up with unique invitation designs and inscriptions.
