Pressing Plants

11/09/2012 02:46:00 pm

Ich wurde von der tollen Kaylah inspiriert, mal wieder Pflanzen zu pressen - das habe ich schon als Kind gemacht, es aber in den letzten wahrscheinlich 10 Jahren komplett ignoriert. Zuerst habe ich also ein paar Blätter gesammelt...

I was inspired by the lovely Kaylah to go out and press some plants - that is something I did when I was younger, but just never got round to it in the last ... 10 years maybe? So, first I gathered some nice leaves...

...sie dann auf Taschentücher gelegt und mit Büchern beschwert...

...arranged them on tissue and put books on them...

...eine Woche gewartet und hatte dann hübsche gepresste Blätter, die ich in mein Notizbuch kleben kann (oder was auch immer)! Macht doch das auch mal wieder, bevor alle Blätter weg sind!

...waited a week and then had pretty pressed leaves to stick into my notebook (or do whatever else)! Why don't you do it, too, before all the leaves are gone?

  2. Oh, I used to do this all the time as a child. Sometimes I'll open a book and a leaf will fall out that I had pressed years and years ago. This makes me want to press some leaves again.

  3. I love how these turned out! I was inspired by Kaylah's post too; I want to try this soon.

  10. Das wäre wohl wirklich mal in Erwägung zu ziehen, das mal wieder zu tun. Ich weiß noch, dass ich früher immer eine 'Press-Maschine' hatte. Also einfach so ein Stapel mit vielen Blättern die man mit einem Gestell zusammendrücken konnte.. Aber ich bezweifel, dass ich das noch irgendwo finden würde. Naja, zur Not werden die Bücher auch effektiv sein!

  11. such a cute idea!
