How to press flowers?

There are different methods to press flowers amongst which the simplest is to press and dry them with books. For this method, place the flowers between the book facing downward and wait for 10 days. You can also use a dried flower press kit for this purpose.

What can flowers be pressed between?

Flowers can be pressed between the pages of heavy books, within layers of newspaper, or using specifically designed botanical press kits. Absorbent materials like blotting paper or coffee filters are also used to help wick away moisture and preserve the flowers’ shape and color during the drying process.

What can I make with pressed flowers?

The craft options are unlimited with flower press and you can make decoration pieces jewelry items and many more.

Does Modge Podge work on pressed flowers?

Any adhesive glue that dries and keeps the material together can work on pressed flowers. Mod Podge does a good job on flowers as it keeps them dry and works best as adhesive glue.

Is it possible to press already-dried flowers?

It is possible to press dry flowers but the final result will be slightly different than fresh flowers. The already-dried flowers retain their contours after pressing and their chances of getting crushed are high. It is recommended to use fresh flowers for crafts and if you are  using dry ones, make sure they have some moisture that will keep them together while pressing.
