Press Drying Flowers

I've been pressing flowers since I was a teenager and I still love it.


 I will often put a pressed flower inside one of my books and lend it out to friends who will find a pretty pressed flower inside.


Here is how I press my flowers.













 Flowers are pressed face down so I can fold the stems the way I want them to dry.


Pressing is much different than drying flowers, as the flowers dry in a pressed state between layers of paper or newsprint.

The flowers are pressed with a flower press or like I do, in an old telephone book with other heavy books on top.
The flowers are left this way for 2 weeks then I check for moisture and keep the process going another week if they are not quite dry.


You can use the press dried flowers for many projects.
