Have you ever pressed flowers?

I'm planning to use these flowers on an online craft day 
with my daughter and granddaughter in New York. 

It's easy to do. 
You can read the directions below 
if you want to press some of your own.

How to Press Flowers

1. Choose flowers with dry, fresh blooms (not faded/pick midday so they have no dew or moisture)
2. Lay flat or face down between layers of parchment paper or waxed paper 
3. Place inside a large, heavy book, and place another book on top for more weight (you can press several flowers placed throughout the book)
4. Check in about two weeks; ready to use when dry
To make a picture of the flowers, use tweezers to place on card stock or other paper, apply small dabs of Aleene's Tacky Glue with a small paint brush and place in a frame with glass.
