How to Press Flowers in a Book: In a book, between sheets of parchment paper or paper towel, lay flowers at the peak of their freshness. The flowers should be as dry as possible! Close the book firmly. Pile heavy books on top. Leave for 7 days- 1 month You can use these flowers in collages and potpourri baskets. If the flowers are edible, you can use them to decorate cookies or cakes!
Al and I are expecting our first baby in May 2021 and I was inspired to press flowers and frame them for her nursery. I love this project as it’s affordable, quick to whip up and the finished product looks really beautiful. This is a great project to make for yourself, or turn your children’s flowers into art or give as a gift leading up to Christmas.
