One of the new plants I couldn't wait to grow last spring was Burpee's exclusive Fireworks flowers , an unruly shockingly pink Globe Amaranth. What a fun flower! The ladies who walk past my house every morning stopped by several time to get a closer look, and even my kids, who are a bit "flowered out," as you can imagine, found them "cool."
Although they are dimensional, they ended up pressing very well in the Microfleur, and their flat, graceful stems are an added plus.
This piece of Fireworks pressed flower art is created on 5 x 7" handmade paper, and mounted on fine Gilbert Oxford card stock. It has been sealed with UV resistant polymers, and is ready to frame in the 8 x 10" frame of your choice.
You can grow your own fireworks next spring! The seeds are available here. If you are interested in purchasing a Microfleur, you can do so here, and, remember, free gift wrapping is available on all Microfleurs and paper making kits from now until December 20th.
