This is the best way to preserve the beauty and fragrance of a beautiful bouquet of fresh roses - Drying the petals make great embellishments for cards, confetti for weddings and bridal showers, or homemade potpourri.
What to do with those expensive flowers after the wedding. Press and dry to make a plaque. Or better yet, make personalized Thank You cards to send to your guests! Send a pressed flower in each card back?
Nuke your fresh flowers in the microwave to get instant pressed flowers. If you need to press a lot of flowers in a short period, time may not be on your side. Microwave pressed flowers are quick, easy and equally beautiful.
