I have really fond memories of pressing flowers as a little one with our flower press. This week we found some lovely local flowers at the farmers market and as they started to fade I thought we would try to preserve them.
You don't need anything fancy, just a heavy book, some flowers, and some paper. You can also place the flowers inside the book if you have a heavy used one that has minimal value.
Pick the flowers you want to press. Lay flat on you paper.
Cover with another sheet and place book on top gently.
Wait a few weeks for them to dry. Once ours are dry and pressed we'll use them for a fun project so be sure to check in!
This was inspired by the lovely ladies over at Wild + Free. They have a free content bundle available and a new monthly online magazine. September's theme is Garden. Be sure to get a copy before the end of the month!
