NCGW Things to do

Flower Pressing

Here’s what you’ll need!

Plenty of time, this will take 2-4 weeks

Colourful flowers

A heavy block such as a house brick

A book with plain white pages


  1. First, you must dry out your flowers, this also takes time so be sure to pick your flowers in advance
  2. Simply then align your flowers on the page however you would like them to look, a fun design to do would be to sketch a plant pot and make it look like the flowers are in it
  3. Carefully close your book and place the heavy weight on top, then leave in a dry corner of your house or shed
  4. Wait 2 to 4 weeks for the flowers to completely flatten
