How do I make printed Garden Images on old Book pages?

Start this fun project off by downloading these five different succulent plant image template.  You can get it right here.

After you download the plant template, find yourself an old book.  It needs to be a book that you are okay with taking apart.  I was a little more sad about ruining a book, than I thought I would be.  I got my book for $0.25 from my local Goodwill, but it still made me a little sad.

Next, remove a few pages from your book.  I then used a piece of washi tape and taped my book page to an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper to put into my printer.

Then, I taped my old book page to a regular piece of letter sized paper with washi tape and ran it through my home printer (you can also take your pages to a local print shop).  That is how easy it was to get these succulents printed out.

And I could not stop there of course.  So, I pulled out my watercolor set and had some fun adding a bit of light color.

I wanted my succulents and plants to have just a light yellow color around them, but you could add any color you would like!  Simply be sure to keep the watercolor watered down and loose.

After you have added the watercolor, be sure to set aside and then dry under a big stack of books to ensure that it will dry flat.

I loved how my little print garden turned out!

Once the succulent pages had dried, I used colorful washi tape to position and tape to the clipboards.
 
My party was less bright color and more simple garden.  So for the party I went with gold only washi tape.
