Scrapbooking Pressed Flower

[deleted account] ( 8 moms have responded )

Anyone scrapbook pressed flowers? Got any tips on how to preserve them? I pressed some rose petals from a bush I planted for my daughter and I want to make sure they don't turn or crumble. Thanks for the help!

I have my pressed first rose from my late dh in our book using a 3L pocket.It's done well no crumbling.

What i did for my daughters flowers, i let them dry out first.Then put them in a photo album for a few months. Then when i put them in her book i just cut plastic and glued the plastic on to the page around the flower.

If you are worried about crumbling you could always find some archival-safe tape and "laminate" the flower between pieces of tape.

I know that craft stores would have some kind of spray that will preserve the flowers - but I would recommend putting them in a separate pocket to keep them form harming photos if they were to crumble.

Creative Memories also makes "memorabilia pockets" that are clear and safe for albums. I dont' know if anything would really prevent the crumbling though - doesn't that happen naturally when they dry out? I'd make sure you take lots of photos, and then the petals would be a bonus if they stay in tact.

Depending on how you are scrapbooking them, would a keepsake envelope do the trick? I know 3L makes some (they have various sizes) that are clear, so would still be able to see the petals, but they would be fully protected.
