Flower Press

There's a simple joy in the art of flower pressing—transforming picked flowers into dried and flattened beauties that last long after spring has sprung. This lightweight flower press is nothing fancy, but it gets the job done. It comes with Velcro straps to keep flowers or leaves fastened tight, and detailed instructions for getting started - a major plus! A great ally for homemade bookmarks and greeting cards. (4M, $6.75)
