    Any ideas on how to press / preserve flowers? I want to keep one from my bouquet if it’s not too late ?  :-\

    The florist sent my friend’s away to a place called Precious Petals but I haven’t seen the results yet but I think they freeze dry the bouquet.  Not sure about DIY though, my friend was going to put them in silica (I think that’s the word) but got scared!

    Hi,

    yep – you can microwave them.  it wont press them but it should keep them nice !

    obviously dont be thick and put wired ones in or use anything metal etc … but just find something to support the flower while drying and do a bit of practice first on the “less perfect” ones before you go for the main thing

    after spray with proper hairspray to coat them 🙂

    what flowers are you doing ? as not all are suitable for microwave !
