Nature Arts & Crafts: Plant Pressing

Plant pressing is a great technique for saving the leaves and flowers you pick on your walks. This method actually has its origins in the scientific community – allowing scientists to take a closer look at flowers over long periods of time without having to worry about decomposition. Plant pressings can be incorporated in any DIY project!


  • leaves or flowers
