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.


Fresh Flowers

Parchment Paper



  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.


    Thank you for commenting, I promise to read each and every one!
