  • the way you do it is get parchment paper (for cooking cookies on) get 2 sheets of it put the flower inbetween them and put the parchment paper into the middle of a dictionary and after a week or so it will be dried out and look like this.. the heavier the book the better but thank you for all the nice comments smile

  • I tried pressing flowers against paper like the one in the picture, but it wouldn't work! It was still three dimensional and not pressed!

  • This is truly gorgeous smile
    My boyfriend did something similar with the rose I gave him for Valentines day, except he pinned our rose up-side down until it dried. So I really admire this! x.
