How to set up an Inexpensive Flower Press
A flower press is probably the most essential item among your flower pressing tools. Unfortunately it can be quite expensive particularly if you buy it from a specialist craft shop.
In any case, most flower presses are much too small to be of any real use. But luckily it’s quite easy to make your own flower press using easily obtainable and inexpensive material.
Some people press their flowers in old books or old telephone directories but I don’t advise this.
It’s a cumbersome and unwieldy method because it’s so easy to dislodge and spoil the pressed flowers while putting in the new ones. Besides they tend to fall out of the pages and get lost very easily!
