Microwave Flower Press Is Fast and Easy To Use

Pressing flowers has been around for a very long time. The craft of drying flowers and pressing them lends to many craft projects and gift ideas.

The beauty of flowers can be enjoyed for many years versus a week or two, and can add natural color and homemade flair to simple picture or card. It can take several weeks for a flower to dry pressed between the pages of a thick book, or wooden press, and sometimes even longer for a dense flower.

Using a microwave with this press make the process fast and easy and turns those weeks into minutes! No more waiting and peeking, and loosing that great idea as you turn your focus on other craft projects.
