Our Giant Flower Press in action with Heart of Blooms

The lovely Andrea Lind from @heartofblooms_ on instagram has been documenting her Flower Pressing journey using our Giant Flower Press.

We can hardly believe how beautiful these photos are, or how she achieved such fantastic colour retention in her pressed flowers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I think these are just perfect, and really appreciate Andrea sharing her journey with us.

Andrea and I were messaging each other after she posted these, and we discussed the lines which have come up on some of the blooms. This certainly does happen with delicate petals but if you’d like to avoid them, be sure to use some paper between the sheets of cardboard, and try not to tighten the press too much – a firm hold does the trick, with a check and possibly a little more after a week or so 💗🙏

How to Make a Pressed Flower Frame

If you’re wondering what to do with all of your gorgeous, delicate pressed Flowers, here’s an idea. Arrange them in a picture frame so you can admire them every day.  We made a little video to show you how easy it is. 

 To create this you will need pressed flowers! Check out our ‘How to Press Flowers‘ blog post  for a demonstration. Our Sow ‘n Sow Flower Presses are available for purchase here.

Happy crafting!

1.  Source an old frame – see what you have at home or have a look at op shops/$2 dollar stores to see what you can find.
The frame we used is from Kmart.

2. Pull the frame apart and clean the glass

3. Arrange the flowers and foliage however you like. If necessary, you can use a small bit of kraft glue to keep them in place

4. Put your frame back together
