Anyone have examples or suggestions on using real pressed flowers on a lo? My DD prom was last weekend and I am pressing some of her roses from her wristlet. I would like to use some of them on her prom lo but not quite sure how to.

I used dried Lavender from my garden on this lo.

I used real weeds on this lo.

I'd put them in a vellum envelope and then on the lo. I have a rose from 15 years ago that was in a paper envelope and there are stains on the envelope from it. It had been pressed first and then put in the envelope. I'm not sure how long it had been in the envelope before the stains appeared but the stains have been there for a long time.

I made a memorial layout when my father in law passed away and I used dried flowers that were at his funeral. I did put the layout in a shadow box so I don't know if that made any difference.
It's been 2 years and the layout is still ok.
