Place them on a sheet of wax paper and cover with a heavy book/object for 1 hour to flatten them. Spread a layer of craft glue and adhere the leaves into place. Allow to dry. Mix 1 T. Craft glue & 1 T. Warm water to create a decoupage paste/glue. Apply tissue

Overlap the lip/edge of the votive going approx 1/4 inch into the glass. Be sure to thoroughly decoupage ALL of the tissue paper. Dry overnight.

      Wow, these are really beautiful, thank you for sharing them. I think they'd be pretty if made with spring and summer flowers that have been dried as well.
