Press your own personal bouquets
Previously, Ben Franklin employed actual leaf prints within the forex he built for the American Colonies in 1739. He imagined this is able to foil counterfeiters when you consider that no two crops are alike.
Amassing, pressing, and arranging flowers became wildly prominent from the 1800s. It had been part of a "return to nature" movement. Adults and children would go outside to search for captivating bouquets, grasses, leaves, stems  even seaweed.

Victorianstyle flower urgent is returning. At the moment we see pressed bouquets, twigs, and leaves artistically shown on notecards, stationery, and wall hangings. You can also make them, as well. (See bins.)
Ann Warwick realized flower pressing from her mom, replica christian louboutin  who liked wildflowers. "She used to take us into your woods," Ms. Warwick says. "We'd select flowers, push them, and appearance them up  it had been educational."
