Pressed Flower Art- Save Spring & Summer Year-Round

We are big fans of spring and summer around here. It's a bummer to see all of the pretty pretty flowers go away.  Maren got this child friendly Sassafrass flower press for her birthday. We decided to take a nature walk around the neighborhood to collect colorful flowers.  The girls love collecting flowers and this was one of the best parts of our activity. We came home and carefully put our flowers into the press. A week later, we opened up the press to find beautifully preserved flowers.  We chose  backgrounds (scrapbook paper) for our flowers to proudly be displayed on.  We paired the flowers with the background, added decorative masking tape and our flower art was finished.

The girls had fun choosing where they wanted to hang them in their room and now they are happy to see their pretty flowers preserved through the rainy months to come.

I'm a part-time work from home, full time stay at home mom to two daughters and an Australian Labradoodle puppy. We are enjoying our last year before big girl school, playing with friends, swapping childcare to get the job done and getting crafty when we can fit it in. We live together in a wonderful community that we are truly thankful for and proud to be a part of. It takes a village and this is ours.
