I had purchased this sweet little flower press for Pre-Teen a few years ago and she never used it. I believe I had ordered it from Hearth Song.
The picture on it is from a wee little book called The Story of The Root Children by Sibylle von Olfers, originally published in German in 1906, reprinted in 2003.
I decided to use the flower press myself. I had also bought this Wildflower album at a thrift store, so decided to try my hand at pressing.
You need to keep the flowers in the press for about three weeks, until they're dry, tightening the screws every few days. If you don't have a flower press, you can just put the petals in the pages of a book with heavy books on top of it.
Here are the finished results!
And, here's the press with another load of petals waiting for the book!
