These Pressed Flower Windows are an easy and beautiful way to preserve kids flower memories. My children love collecting flowers and it is always a mystery which ones will come out looking pretty enough to make into a card or window.

Time: 30 minutes (plus extra collecting and pressing time)
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy



Flowers
Pick some flowers


Materials

Fresh picked flowers x 10
Flower press (or several heavy books)
Tweezers (optional for transporting the delicate flowers)
2 sheets of clear sticky plastic (we call it "contact")
Embroidery ring (for presenting the "window")

Method

Collect some beautiful flowers from the garden or park.

Place them gently into a flower press or between the pages of a heavy book, and leave to dehydrate for about one week.

Embroidery ring and sticky plastic


Lay your embroidery ring on top of the sticky plastic to cut out the circle shape. You could also use any see through picture frame as an alternative to the embroidery ring.

Lay out the flowers


Peel off the plastic backing, lay it on a flat surface, and use tweezers to lay the pressed flowers into the clear sticky "window". Cover this with another matching piece of clear sticky plastic or "contact".

Place the "window" into the embroidery ring and display in a real window so that the sunlight enhances the colorful petals. This is a great way to remember flowers from special holidays or events in family life.
