"Pounding Flowers"

This was the title of the book that we came across in the Hobbies section of our library. The only tool required for pursuing this hobby is: a hammer!!!

What is the hobby about? It is to place a flower on a card or fabric, cover it up with a tissue  and hit on it with a hammer. The flower gets crushed and the dye sticks onto the card/fabric, making designs on the card/fabric. How strange!

So, if I understood the book correctly, to get a bouquet onto a card, I need a bouquet of flowers to stamp on! That seems crazy!
