    Step 1

    To press your flowers quickly you'll need a microwave. You'll also need something that's microwave safe and has a flat surface
    (example: tile, ceramic flat dish). I used some firebricks that I had on hand.

    Like this. Than microwave it in the microwave oven for 1-2 minutes. Do this in 30 sec increments and check your flowers each time. (CAUTION: don't microwave for 2 minutes straight because it will burn your flowers and might even start on fire)

    Following that pull some picture frames apart and display your flowers on them. You'll need two pieces of glass. Once you've display your flowers add the other piece of glass on top and hot glue all the edges with hot glue. Leave something heavy on top. Once the hot glue has dried your flowers should sit between the glass securely. ( NOTE: you do not need to glue the flowers to the glass. Simply glue the glass to the frame)
