Since it is a mother’s day gift. You can choose the favorite color of your mom, grandma, or someone else you want to send this gift. Pick one of the pastel pen, or you can choose more than one if you can mix the color well. Scrape pastels with a knife or tweezers with bookmark paperboard on the bellow. The finer pastel particles the better. Apply pastels with napkins. 

Step 2: Prepare the dried verbena

Put on the dried verbena and adjust the position with the use of tweezers. Use toothpicks to spot some white latex and paste it on the back of the flowers you have positioned before. Cover the surface with cold lamination film.

 

Tips: Remove the static film from the cold lamination film and place it on the back of it. This can help to eliminate static electricity when you cover the film.

Step 3: Decorating the bookmark
