A silk flower is the perfect front on a feminine invitation for a bridal or baby shower.
Materials and Tools:
1. Remove the flower from its stem, making the back as flat as possible. It may be necessary to glue the layers of the petals together with hot glue when the stem is removed.
2. Hot glue a magnet to the back of the flower.
3. On the inside of the card, glue a piece of sheet metal cut into a small square or a paper clip in the spot behind where the flower will go.
4. Use the same treatment for Christmas ornaments or anything else to which a magnet can be glued.
Use these glass ornaments as place card holders on your table. Follow these instructions by Tim Holtz to make your own ornaments.
