Flower Drying Guide

 
SECOND STEP

 

Finding something to press the flowers in. As you are pressing all the water out of the flowers, be sure to choose something that can absorb the water, such as a book, newspaper or a piece of cotton placed both above and beneath the flowers.

 

 

FOURTH AND LAST STEP

 

Have patience. Leave the flowers undisturbed for around 14 days.

Once finished all that is left is to take your frame and get creative with your fresh pressings.

 
FIRST STEP

 

Choosing flowers. It is important to pick flowers that are suitable for pressing. Flowers with a low water content will both dry faster and look nicer pressed, as they are often thinner.

THIRD STEP

 

Find something heavy to place on top. Be sure whatever the item that it distributes the weight evenly over the surface it is pressing against. Ensure your pressing come out evenly flat.
