How to Store your Pressed Flowers

After two or three weeks your flowers will be ready to use. After about a week you can take a careful peep but only look at one small section.

Then close it up again and wait.

If everything looks ok you can dismantle your sandwich!

Take away the boards, remove the newspaper padding, carefully stacking the used but dry newspapers so that they can be aired and re- used. However they should only be used again if they are not too badly soiled.

If you are able to re-use the newspapers it saves a lot of time as they are already folded.

Remember that using paper again only applies to the newspapers that have been used for padding inside the sandwich.

The papers that the flowers were pressed in should never be re-used.
