Materials Needed For DIY 5 Minute Flower Bookmarks

Fresh Flowers

Paper Towel

Packing Tape or Contact Paper


Pick some fresh flowers from your garden or from a bouquet. Lay your fresh flowers on a paper towel and cover them with another paper towel. Put them in the microwave and put something heavy on top of them like a plate. Put on low for 30 seconds, take them out and if it looks like they still have moisture coming out, repeat the process until your flowers are completely dry. You can also skip this step entirely if you are using dried flowers. Once your flowers are completely dry, arrange them on a piece of tape in any pattern you like. When your design is finished, cover with another piece of tape and trim the edges with a scissor to make them match up.

Gardener Kelsey's Tip: Make sure the flowers are completely dry or they can mold in the bookmark if they have dampness.
