- Flower petals (some kinds work better than others, so you'll want to experiment; we used violas and Johnny-jump-ups)
- Bath or kitchen towel
- Wooden cutting board
- Paper towels
- White card stock
- Fine-tip marker
- Gather the flower petals in true fairy spirit: be sure they are safe to pick and are in your yard, or use petals you find on the ground. Choose a large petal for the skirt and smaller petals for the arms and wings. Tear petals in half if you can't find the right size.
- Place the towel under the cutting board (this reduces the noise when you hammer). Set 2 layers of paper towel on the board. Place a piece of card stock on the paper towels.
- To print, lay your first petal facedown on the card stock, cover it with a second piece of card stock, and use the hammer to gently tap the area where the petal is sandwiched (no heavy pounding!).
