Flower Drying Guide
Choosing flowers. It is important to pick flowers that are suitable for pressing. Flowers with a low water content will both dry faster and look nicer pressed, as they are often thinner.
Finding something to press the flowers in. As you are pressing all the water out of the flowers, be sure to choose something that can absorb the water, such as a book, newspaper or a piece of cotton placed both above and beneath the flowers.
