Pressing flowers and/or leaves is a fairly simple process, you just have to be a little bit patient!
2) Fold the paper in half and place the flowers you want to press in-between the fold. They will dry EXACTLY like you place them so ensure they are laid out without touching each other. If you want a curved stem or something like that be sure to place it that way from the start.
3) Now, simply place the paper under something heavy like a large hardback book, flat rock or a heavy board.
The length of time it will take to dry the blooms depends on several factors including the type of bloom, thickness of petals and atmospheric conditions. I tend to leave mine for at least a week and then check them, if they are done good! If not I’ll leave them another week and check again. The good news here is you can check them as often as you like, it won’t hurt them!
Happy Pressing 🙂
