Pressed Flowers, Petals and Greenery


Place flowers, petals or greenery between the pages of a telephone book with at least one inch of pages between each pressing. Weigh down with two or three heavy books or a cinderblock. When all the moisture has gone (one to two weeks, depending on the plant), remove flowers, petals or greenery and keep in a closed box in a cool place until you are ready to use them.
