Why they'll love itPreserve the flower and the memory from that sunny country walk. Create art.
A great addition on cards, collages and in scrapbooks.
Simple to use. Unscrew the big, easy to grasp fasteners and place flower, petals, leaves into the slots of the cardboard pressings. Tighten the screws and let the press flatten what has been placed inside. Best to leave flowers at least one week. Patience required!
Why you'll love itSure, you could drag off a big heavy book from the shelf and use that instead, but this small, solid flower press does a great job.
Flower pressing dates as far back as Ancient Egypt and became popular in England during the Victorian era. It’s a fantastic way of saving a sentimental bloom or examining it in my detail.
The perfect way to encourage them outdoors with a project. Learn about wildflowers and habitats.
