flower press fun

With flowers popping up everywhere, you can really feel spring in the air. Take advantage of all the beautiful plants that are flourishing this time of the year by trying out a flower press. A classic toy, flower presses can be used to save and record different plants you have found or grown, or to add an extra element to arts and crafts.

We have two cute presses in the store, both fantastic for the spring. We have a darling Beatrix Potter-themed press, decorated with sweet illustrations. We also carry this fun, brightly coloured wooden press which is a great size for saving flowers and leaves. What flowers are blooming in your neighborhood?

If you are looking for inspiration for what to create with your flowers, check out these ideas! Below is a sweet hanging art work you can do from Mom in Madison:

For older kids, try making these lovely wax paper luminaries! They are super easy to make, and would be beautiful with pressed flowers and spring leaves. Check out the tutorial on Apartment Therapy.

Happy, happy spring everyone!
