What to do with dried flowers...

Digging through an old 1940's scrapbook I purchased at an estate sale. Among the postcards and greeting cards, I found several pages and well-preserved dried flowers still sealed in wax paper.

Any suggestions what to do with them? The only one i have opened looked very nice!

Lucky you!! Frame them on plain paper and hang them as art, for a vintage botanical display!

I also have some paper that has dried flowers inlaid in it. Super pretty and fragile.
