Flowers + Book = A Pressed Flower Book

If you love flowers and books, we have a simple and fun idea for you!  Take an old book with a pretty cover, and turn it into a book for pressing and keeping flowers and leaves. 

Use your creativity; there’s not a “wrong” way to create a pressed flower book. Open your book, arrange flowers or other plant material inside and close. Secure your book using twine, a ribbon even an old belt!

You may want to attach twine or ribbon with dab of glue on the back of the book. By securing and tightening, your book will remain closed and help your plant material to flatten. 

The bottom line is: have fun, be creative and enjoy nature. 

And, if you’re searching for a book to use, look no further than the FOL Bookstore located inside the Black Mountain Library.
