This was the second time I pressed plants – the first time, my mom accidentally thought it was leftover paper towel left on the dining table and threw them all out. So, this is the first time I completed the process! I’m very pleased with them, even though I could have done more on my part to make them turn out better.
Just a few tips for any interested in pressing plants (as well as for myself for next time):
- use paper towel with zero texture – several sheets of paper might work instead
- arrange plants exactly how you want it to look like pressed flat (see daisies for example)
- layer another paper towel or paper over the plants, and then leave a thick book on top of the layers
- leave alone for a week
