Copper tape has a sticky back but should be worked with carefully. It’s so pretty, but when bent too much will show it’s bends. So be careful and be gentle. When you remove the tape backing, try to not fold it. And when you place copper tape on your matchbooks press firmly across the entire surface of your matches.

For the pressed flowers, it’s almost too simple! Just take a tiny drop of mod podge and brush it on the back of the flower. While the mod podge is wet, place the flower on the matches and hold in place for just a few seconds.

If any flowers are not perfectly adhered, just add a touch more mod podge with your foam brush – this time to the surface of the flower.

If you use copper tape, your matches will be done instantly. And if you use pressed flowers, your mod podge will just take 10-15 minutes to completely dry. And viola!
