Here’s the perfect little flower press to carry with you whenever you go for a hike or even a walk around your own backyard. We keep one in the car too because we always come across plants which we find pretty, want to remember a special event, or can’t identify so we can bring them home and look them up.
To make one you need:
corrugated cardboard from an old box
rubberbands (at least 3 thick rubberbands)
package tape or clear contact paper
1. Cut the cardboard into 3 rectangles that are 8″L x 5 1/2″W.
2. Cut the newspaper into 8″ x 5 1/2″ rectangles. These are your pressing papers.
After a week or two, the flowers should be pressed and ready to remove. Please don’t forget the nature rule…..”if there’s more than 10 you may collect a few, less then 10 don’t be a greedy fool!” We NEVER pick any of our endangered plants and wildflowers. Enjoy!
