Pressed Flowers

We are so lucky to be living with my mother who is such an avid gardener.  There are so many beautiful flowers in our back yard we just have to take advantage of them.
L got this cute little flower press for Christmas and has been desperate to use it. 

L and Granny picked some flowers and then put them between the cardboard pieces.  We tightened down the ladybug screws and left them for a few days.

L was delighted with her pressed flowers and glued them on to this black piece of card.  She then picked a little whit clover and used it as a paint brush. We both thought the result looked really cool.

I am with Mari-Ann, i keep thinking about making a press and then I just never do it! Your press is so pretty, what fun.

Very cute! We got Short Pants a simple press awhile ago and he's been eagerly waiting for his flowers to bloom so that he can use it. Where did you order yours from?
