Now it's time to assemble your flower press! Take four of your screws and place those through the holes of your top piece so the screw head is on the engraving side of the piece. Turn the top over with the screws facing up. Next, place a piece of cardboard on top of the wood, a piece of tissue paper on top of the cardboard, your flower on top of the tissue (see Figures 6 & 7), another piece of tissue and finally another piece of cardboard on top of the tissue paper (see Figure 8).
Add as many layers as you want. Then place the bottom piece on top of your last piece of cardboard, take your wing nuts and screw them on tight. As the days go by continue to screw down the wing nuts and this will continue the drying process to ensure the flowers are flat and dry. See Figure 9.
You're done! You can add the flowers to your scrapbooks, photo albums, make bookmarks out of them, etc. Use your imagination and have fun!
