Flower Press

After the immense interest Michael showed at the 4-H horticulture meeting, we decided to make a flower press.  Michael has successfully pressed flowers before in big books, but he was more than excited to try his hand at this project.  

We used a couple of different sites for ideas:

Make a Portable Flower Press for Your Herbarium 

Nature Crafts: How To Make Your Own Flower Press


Fortunately for us, Daniel's flute teacher has a plethora of beautiful flowers that she was willing to share with us to test out our new flower presses.  

There are several other kinds of wooden presses that we are planning on making in the coming weeks, but these cardboard ones are easy for kids to make on their own and a great low-cost solution to making your own flower press!
