What is Pressed flower craft?

Pressed flower craft is the art of preserving flowers and leaves by flattening and drying them. These pressed flowers can then be used to create a variety of beautiful and delicate projects.

Here’s a closer look:

  • The Process: Flowers are carefully arranged between absorbent materials like blotting paper or parchment paper. Then, weight is applied to press the flowers flat. This drying process removes moisture and preserves the flower’s shape and color. A flower press or heavy books can be used for pressing.
  • Materials: Almost any kind of flower can be pressed, but thin, flat flowers with low moisture content work best. You’ll also need blotting paper or parchment paper, weights (books or a flower press), and craft materials like glue and frames depending on your project.
  • Projects: Pressed flowers can be used in all sorts of creative ways! Popular projects include framed artwork, greeting cards, bookmarks, jewelry, and even phone cases.

Pressed flower crafts are a great way to preserve the beauty of flowers and create unique handmade keepsakes or gifts. If you’d like to get started, there are many online tutorials available to guide you through the process.
