All living things eventually die
“Mom, I don’t want this flower’s petals to fall off and die, how can we save it?”
I told my daughter that we can’t keep it alive, but there is a way to keep its petals from falling off and keep it forever.
“Let’s do it, this one’s about to die!”
So we did
•flowers (try to stick to flowers that can be pressed flat, thick flowers don’t work as well)
Back in 2008, I pressed my prom corsage. I still have it in a scrapbook, along with pictures of my husband and I at prom, but it never flattened all the way.
Open the book, fold a piece of parchment paper in half and put it on top of the page
Then place the flowers between the parchment paper and carefully close it
Put something heavy on top of the book and leave it be for a week.
After a week the flowers should be dried and flat and can be used for a keepsake or decoration.
