Pressed Flowers

One of the wonderful gifts that Grace recieved for her birthday was a flower press (thanks to Sarah, Ben and their littles). All the girls in attendance at her birthday celebration wanted to see how it worked, so they gathered flowers, grass, clover, leaves and other bits of nature and we put it in the press. Two and a half weeks have passed since the bits of nature were first put in there so we decided to open it up and see what things looked like.
After they were done admiring how beautiful everything looked they decided they wanted to decorate the two wooden pieces of the flower press.  They headed to the table and got right to work.
The press looks so beautiful now that the girls have decorated it with the pressed flowers.  This is truly the gift that keeps on giving and will clearly be enjoyed for years to come!
