Pressed flower frames are great ways to preserve gorgeous blooms.

Flower gardens are breathtakingly beautiful. There’s nothing more relaxing than cutting flowers and then putting them in a vase. While fresh flowers are gorgeous, their beauty, unfortunately, is temporary. A few days later, they’ll start to wilt and then die.

These will make wonderful gifts to family and friends.

Pressing your favourite blooms is a great way to preserve them. This is a great idea for a present, too. You can also use this technique if you want to preserve flowers for sentimental reasons. It could be that they were given to you by someone special, or if it represents a significant moment in your life, such as your wedding day.

This is a very relaxing activity that won’t take much time and effort. However, you’re sure to love the end product. You can make several frames and use them as decors. You can also give them out to family and friends.
