I hung up some of the individual flowers from my wedding bouquet. They seem to be all dried out now. So can I press them? Or what should I do with them? Is there a special way to press the flowers so that they stay preserved over time? I know sometimes they can get moldy, is that because they weren’t completely dried?
Any other ideas of what I should do with them?

I’ve heard of some people putting them in a shadow box, or making potporri with them to put them on display. But I don’t think you can press them (like in a book) once they are already dry. I think pressing them is a drying process unto itself. My step mom still has hers hanging upsidedown on the back porch, seems to be fine on it’s own.

… DONT PRESS THEM! Once they’re dried, they’re done. If you press them, they’ll just break down into dust. You can put them in a shadowbox but really that’s about it.

yeah, seconding, but if you press dried flowers you’ll have flower dust!
