I remember pressing flowers as a little girl. I used a book instead of a nice flower press. I bought a flower press from Michaels. Very basic and inexpensive Amelia and I had a lot of fun picking flowers from around the yard. This is the only time Amelia is aloud to pick my flowers! She has a habit of picking every flower and with an excited look on her face she hands them to me. It's hard to get mad at that happy face.
I picked up a pack of transfers for another project but couldn't resist adding a few butterflies to our flower press. I may even stain the wood. I'm not a fan of the "new wood" look.
I think I will dry a bunch of flowers so that I can use them on Amelia's birthday card envelopes to add a special touch. I like the idea of adding them to a journal or handwritten recipe book.
