    Homemade Flower Drying Formula

    You'll Need:
    5 C. white cornmeal
    1 1/2 c. borax

    Combine the two ingredients, ensuring that they mix well. Pour some into a shallow container or paper bag, such as a lunch sack. Place the flowers on mix, then gently pour remaining mix over flowers, making sure they are completely covered.
    The recipe can be doubled or tripled as needed. Place in a cool dark area to set for 2 weeks, then carefully remove the flowers from the bag. These dried flowers will last for years!
