I bought a flower press as a present for a friend but ended up keeping it for myself (oops). Don’t worry I got her something else.
Freya and I recently tried it out and this is our first result. We only left it a week because that’s all the patience a five-year-old has – and even that was pushing it – but I’m still quite pleased with the way it turned out.
Here’s a before:
I’ve just pressed a few more (shh, don’t tell Freya) and hope to keep them in there for two or three weeks. My idea is to make an F and then pop it in a box frame for her room.
Have you ever pressed any flowers? Any tips?

Hi Tara, I’m surprised by how much colour the pressed flower has kept. I’ve got no tips as it’s been years since I pressed flowers, but a framed F made of flowers sounds a decoration.
Both pictures are lovely. And I’m sure she’ll love the flower art once it’s done. Good for you for being a lil’ sneaky to outwit her 5-year-old patience!
It looks good! I love your idea of making an F for her. I used to press flowers between books as a kid. My own kids wouldn’t believe that was as good as entertainment got in the 80s!
How lovely! I’ve never pressed flowers but my mom has in books over the years.
I used books when I was younger and it damaged them 😦 Loving the flower press though.
