In meeting this this week's assignment, I have decided to review a beautiful little book from my bookshelf called The Book of Cards and Collages by Penny Black. It tells how to make more than 100 cards, gift tags, and decorative papers with pressed flowers. This book was published by Simon & Schuster in 1993.


  1. The book looks lovely. Have you made cards and such with pressed flowers?
