Paper and flowers have never looked so good together. To create your cover, place one sheet of watercolor paper on top of three pieces of paper towel. Lay thin flower petals and blades of grass face down in your chosen arrangement and cover with one piece of paper towel. Hammer atop the petals until you begin to see the pigment seep through. Gently peel the petals off the paper. To set the pigment, pass a warm iron over your design. For a unique twist on scrapbook pages, gather various paper bags and large envelopes and bind them in between your watercolor paper covers with raffia. Add a stick for a touch of Mother Nature and to keep the binding strong. Fill the bags and envelopes with notes, photos, postcards and other special memories.
