The Flower press...

and a surprise..I found flowers in it LOL
A couple of people asked to see a pic of my ancient flower press so here it is. My Mom bought this for me when I was a kid (purchased in Mothercare a UK shop that sells kids clothes etc) . I tried to find one here in the US but it wasn't as easy as I thought. Then I tried to make one (too much hassle). So mom brought this one over on a visit...When we opened it up it had flowers in it from YEARS ago LOL.
As I was taking pics I found that it had flowers in it from 1-2 years ago. They are soooo thin. I bought some Modge Podge for the first time So I will see what I can do with it.
Hopefully I will have some art to post later
Have a wonderful Saturday!

You are so lucky to have all those flowers. That press is awesome. When I was a kid we always tried to press flowers with wax paper and books, but they never turned out as pretty as yours.
