DIY Sunday: Pressed Flowers


Well I'm pretty sure its official that spring has sprung! And wanted to do something springy! So I thought flowers. And this is what I came up with.
First off you want to go out with your scissors and pick all the beautiful flowers you love. They don't just have to be flowers, I did lots of leaves too!
Start at the back of the book, and work your way from right to left.
Now place all your flowers and leaves in the book, leave a good chunk of paper between each page of flowers.
Next close the books and put a bunch of weight on them. In my case, I used my magazines. I've got a ton!

Then you just wait a few weeks and then they will be thin and beautiful, I will show you mine in a few weeks.
