Pressed flowers

Step 1- gather your flowers and leaves. Hunt in your garden and find some flowers and leaves to press.

Step 2- find a heavy book and some paper, baking paper works best, but any paper even magazine pages work

Step 3- lay one sheet of paper inside your open book. Carefully put your flowers on the paper. Lay another sheet on top of your flowers and slowly and gently close the book

Step 4- put your book in a safe place and pile more books or other heavy items on top.

Step 5- wait at least 3 days before you open your book. When you are ready open the book and carefully lift out the two sheets of paper.

Step 6- if you have a hot water cupboard put the paper and flowers in there to dry. If not leave in a warm dry spot, to dry.

​Soon we will share craft ideas to use your beautiful dried flowers and we would love to see photos of your creations​.
