Many years ago when I did anything to keep from going stir-crazy with a 
houseful of kids I made pressed flower pictures - gave them to everybody I knew for 
Christmas and then sold a pile of them in a gift shop.  I bought small frames 
and felt squares from a craft store.  If you arrange the pressed flowers on 
the felt, and then place the glass over them, they will stay in place without 
any glue.  Another way is to put them between two pieces of glass and tape the 
edges, but that requires a lot more care and skill.   Notepapers are always 
pretty but they take more care to put together and keep from being messy.
