We used tulips here, but substitute with any flower you like!

You will need:
glass plates
aluminium leafing+ special leafing glue
photocopies of tulip prints
  1. Print out photo copies of vintage tulip prints, there are thousands to find online.
  2. Cut them out.
  3. Apply the leafing glue to the back of the plates and leave to dry according to the bottle’s instructions.
  4. Attach the tulip and the leafing.
  5. Use a brush to push the leafing into the glue. Let it dry.


You can use a varnish to protect the aluminum leafing.
