[MICROWAVE] Ever needed pressed&dried flowers in seconds? Here's how! :)

Posted by Liddlehopper from Antwerp, Ohio, United States • Published See Liddlehopper's 21 projects »

  • Step 1

    Gather supplies listed

  • Step 2

    take 2 small pieces of corrugated cardboard, 2 pieces of coffee fileter (you can fold it in half, and then rip the folded piece in half again) and 2 small pieces of paper. Layer like this: Bottom cardboard, next paper, flower, paper on top of flower, coffee filter upon that and cardboard on top. The coffee filters are used as cushions.

    Place a rubberband around the whole thing to hold it together

  • Step 3

    Set in microwave for 25+ seconds...

    My first flower I put in for 40 seconds and burned it.

    I did the rest at 25 seconds.

  • Step 4

    It WILL be hot when you remove it, so be careful! If you work with quick hands, you can remove it all right away.

    Enjoy! :)

This is genius! I keep meaning to buy some pressed flowers for card-making but (near enough) free is infinitely better. Thank you for putting this up Happy
