How To Make A Pressed Flower Frame?
Choose your flowers. Fine, delicate flowers tend to press very well. Try butterfly raununculus, hellebores, nigella, clematis, or delphiniums. Prep your press layering up the blotted paper onto the flower press. Blotting paper is used to remove moisture from the flowers and flatten them over a period of time. Lightly press the flower face down into the blotting paper. Take another piece of blotting paper and sandwich the flower between the layers. Continue to layer up the press with multiple pieces of blotting paper and screw the flower press tightly, but not too much that the flowers may become damaged.
Leave the flower press for 2-4 weeks in a warm dry place. Check the press every few days to ensure the blotting paper hasn’t got too moist. If it has, replace the blotting paper with new paper and re-tighten. Be careful with the flower to ensure nothing is damaged. After a while, you may not need to replace the paper as the flower dries out, but keep tightening regularly to make sure they are pressed thoroughly.
Once pressed, begin making your composition on the glass of the frame. Lightly apply glue to the back of the flower and stick onto the glass frame. Leave the frame open for 5 minutes for the glue to dry.
