Martha Stewart Sunday: Pressed Flowers



     So I had a bouquet from my boyfriend from Valentine's Day. I didn't want to just throw out the flowers, I know I know, I am kind of sentimental like that. So I decided to press a few, luckily Martha was there with the know how to press them.


Materials:

Fresh Flowers

Parchment Paper

HEAVY BOOK (S)





Directions:

  1. Take flowers and cut off the stem. Then tenderly place them on parchment paper, fold parchment paper over them so they are covered.
  2. Place at the bottom of a heavy book or two.
  3. Check back in about ten days for beautifully pressed flowers!

    1. What a lovely flower-pressing tutorial. I'm quite sentimental as well - keeping old tickets and such in shoeboxes, but I like this idea of pressing flowers.

      Beautiful blog you have here!

      Hugs from your fan in Paris xx

    2. Thank you so much! I bought a photo box from Michael's on sale and keep everything in there. They weren't that expensive and look very attractive (plus they are sturdier). I keep everything from movie tickets to cards sent in it.
