Supplies:

pressed flowers and herbs from naturespressed.com
cardstock from AC Moore - Size: 8 1/2 X 11 - I got two menu’s to each sheet (lengthwise)
hot glue and hot glue gun
paper cutter (optional - you could cut them all by hand, but that’s gotta take an awful long time)


My next DIY project - menus!

I’m having a buffet, so they are a little different then your regular 3 entree menus but you should be able to get the general idea!  (download my word doc template: menu template)

I purchased my paper from AC Moore.  I got half in sage green and half in ivory and printed them with my home printer. 

Once they were printed (2 to a page - lengthwise), I cut them in half.  Then I attached the herbs using my hot glue gun.  (wonderful dried herbs purchased from naturespressed.com) It was relatively simple (though not painless!  wink that glue gets hot!!!) but time consuming.  I wanted the glue to be as invisible as possible, so I took my time applying the thinest smallest amount of glue to each herb.

And this is the finished product:
