The flower press was made by my dad. If I recall, he made it for my sister during her days as a biology student in college. It's simply a frame of wood that contains cardboard pieces, blotting paper, newspaper, and paper towel. The flowers are pressed in layers between the cardboard with the other papers cushioning them and absorbing moisture. It's all tied tightly together with a cord that keeps everything secure.
