How To Make Your Glass Frame Pressed Flower Art
Firstly you need to gather some flowers to press. I suggest that you gather and press more flowers than you need because some flowers may not look as you want them to when pressed. I pressed a whole lot of beautiful pink flowers only to find that the little flowers easily fell off the stems once dry. If pressing flowers isn’t your thing then Amazon has a great selection of already pressed flowers alternatively have a look in your local craft or dollar store.
To press the flowers you will need some baking paper and a stack of heavy books. Place a layer of parchment paper on a book and lay your flowers flat. Place another layer of parchment paper on top of the flowers before placing another book on top. Continue this process until all of your flowers have been placed flat. Make sure the flowers are kept to a single row. Stack all of the books on top of each other and put aside. Leave for about a week.
When the flowers are dried and pressed decide what ones you would like to display in your glass frame. Open the frame and carefully place inside. Depending on your frame the pressed flowers may need a little glue to hold in place. Close frame and display or gift to a special friend.
