Cut off a piece of wax paper and give it to your child along with some rose petals. Older kids can make a design or their initials, but my little ones just arranged the rose petals on the wax paper.
Lay your petal covered wax paper on a thin towel and place another piece of wax paper over it, creating a wax paper sandwich.
Before you iron, place another thin towel OVER the wax paper sandwich. The photo I took of this step had a big shadow, but please remember to place another towel before ironing. Now you will use the hot iron to seal the wax paper. I found that I needed to hold the iron over various places for 10 seconds or so for the paper to seal. This time might vary depending on your iron. Lift your towel to check your progress. When the paper is sealed you will notice that you are able to see the roses more clearly. If you do not yet, return the towel and just keeping iron until you can see the flowers better. Here is how ours looked after ironing.
