  2. That's a great idea. I started pressing flowers with a really basic press [with the wood breaking in two before even being used it was that cheap] and I never really knew what to do with the flowers afterwards. I love this idea and how you can build up a design.

  4. I've often wondered what was the "magic" in keeping the flowers in place. And now I know...Matte Gel! Thanks for the simple and chic decorating tip! {curtsy}

  10. How did you dry the "wishing flower" aka dandelion with some of the seed/ petal/ fuzzy part? I have a love of thoes flowers & have some painted on my wall.

  12. It isn't a wishing flower. Since I can't really see it up close I can only take a guess at its name but it looks either to be Queen Ann's Lace or a related species. I know this because we had to do a flower pressing project for my botany class and I had three different species of this flower in my final project. It is a common weed that grows in rocky abandoned fields or by the side of roadways. What you see going off of the center aren't individual seeds but are rather green or brown stemy bits that hold several seeds on each tip. It does however give a better impression when dried of a wishing flower than a wishing flower does though. Happy Hunting :-)

  17. We haven’t been able to find our flower press since our last move…now I’m inspired to make one of these with the kids instead of waiting for the old one to show up! Portable is always good on the nature hike days. Wonderful. :)
