Gather the flowers you want to press, along with some newspaper, tissue paper, a heavy book (a phone book works well), and a large brick or rock. First set out a piece of cardboard that is almost the same size as your : Sherri Osborn.

      Trim off corners of cardboard so they do not interfere with the bolts of your flower press. Step 3. Try Pressing Flowers. Take your specimens and lay them out how you like on plain paper. Insert your flowers between your cardboard sheets and use the wingnuts to tighten and press. After 24 hours, you will have perfectly pressed flowers!   The easiest pressing method calls for absorbent paper and heavy books (like an old telephone book). Measure a piece of paper so it fits inside the book. Place flowers on the paper; cover with another piece of paper. Close the book; weigh down with a heavy stack of books or a few bricks.

      The longer you press the flowers, the less water will be left in them. Give them two to three weeks before removing from the book. If they don’t have a papery feel, change out the parchment.   You can buy (see one here) or make a traditional flower press (see instructions here) or simply use some big, heavy books. Place specimens between sheets of paper and place in press/between pages of book. Do not overlap any of the flowers or leaves on each sheet. Bulky items should be done on their own, to ensure even pressure.
