Pressed Flowers




Two out-dated telephone books

Two heavy stoneware plates

Paper towels

Cut flowers

Place cut flowers gently into an old telephone book and place in refrigerator for two days.

Turn one stone plate face down and place paper towels in bottom center. Gently place flowers in a single position, not touching each other.

Put another layer of paper towels over the flowers. Put the other stoneware plate on top of the paper towels matching bottoms. Place the plates in the microwave and cook them for 8 minutes on LOW heat.

Remove them from the microwave and let them cool thoroughly.

When they are cool remove them from the paper towels.

If you aren't ready to use them, put them into another old telephone book and put a weight on it until you are ready to use the flowers.
