Preserve the colour and cheer of bright pansies by turning them into butterflies! This is a great way to remember the garden all year long.
: 5 minutes pressing, 10 minutes activity (allow up to 2 weeks for drying)

University or college textbooks work great!
Layer petals to create depth and interest.
Create larger wings by overlapping.
These butterflies would be great on a birthday card, mother's day card or thank you note. You could also try laminating to make a placemat
Pansies are a great flower to press as they have a single layer of petals and their vibrant colours are still reflected in the dried product. Try pressing leaves or other single layer flowers such as cosmos or delphiniums to create different butterflies or other animals!
