A good flower press can last you a lifetime, even become a treasured heirloom that all generations can enjoy, passed down from grandmother to mother and to sons and daughters. I still treasure the huge one my Grandfather (a talented carpenter) created for my Grandmother, who adored her garden and had a lifetime's enjoyment from pressing flowers. It is this ungainly (but very effective) tool that was the basis for my design for The Gathered Room presses. Large enough to preserve those beautiful arcing sweet pea stems, as well as tiny daisies.
However you use your pressed flowers, I'd love to see them - just use the hashtag #thegatheredroom on Instagram and I'll share my favourites with my followers!
