Pressed Plants

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
  • voilà!
