Wooden Flower Press

I am so so proud of these beautiful flower presses. It was rediscovering the old wooden flower press I had as a child early last year that started my obsession with pressing flowers and leaves and out of that came the pressed flower craft workshops that I now run throughout Bristol for both children and adults. There is something so magical about opening up a flower press after a few weeks when you’ve often forgotten what you put inside it to discover all the beautiful delicate papery flowers and leaves. My flower presses are made from sustainable plywood and my logo and design has been laser etched into the wood by a lovely company called Cut By Beam in Cornwall. I fill each one with 7 layers of double wall cardboard for a sturdier press and there are 2 pieces of parchment paper in between each layer to press your flowers and leaves perfectly. Most flower presses only have 4 or 5 layers, but I wanted to create something that can press a bit more each time as I always have way more flowers and leaves than can fit in my press so I’ve created a deeper press with 6 layers.  I hope you love your flower press and if it’s a gift for a child, I like to think that they too will still be using it well into their forties and beyond as I am!

Each press comes fully assembled with tips on how best to press your flowers and leaves and I have written a blog on here with lots of craft ideas you can make with your pressed flowers and leaves.

Dimensions: 20cm x 15cm (screw depth is 8cm), 7 layers for pressing

    I’ve just received 2 of these beautiful flower press, one for me and the other to put away for my flower loving daughter-in-law’s birthday. They are a delight, suitable for adults or children and I cannot wait for my garden to come into bloom so that i can start.

    Received my flower press beautifully wrapped as always by Naomi with pressed wild flowers.
    It’s a lovely quality and very easy to use. Already full of early summer flowers. Plus Naomi’s tutorial on how to press flowers inspired me! Thank you.

    I was looking for a traditional flower press (that my grandma used to have) rather than the microwave ones available on the high street and came across this one. It’s very pretty and a good size for larger petals. Very pleased with the results from my first attempt.

    I buy quite a bit of stuff from independent makers and am used to things arriving prettily packaged and with a friendly message…but Naomi’s flower press arrived with an actual handwritten letter, as if we were old friends. It totally made my day! The press itself is beautiful…well made, substantial and a great size. Can’t wait to get pressing things! Thank you so much, Naomi. 🙂

    I’ve received my flower press and just unwrapping the package gave me so much joy! Honestly the care and thought given by Naomi is wonderful and the press is so beautifully made, a great size and I’m already looking for flowers to start pressing. Buy yourself one – you’ll be so happy you did!

    I received my flower press as a birthday present and was stunned at how beautiful it was, it really is somewhere special for me to put my precious cuttings.

    I received my beautiful flower press a couple of weeks ago, but wanted to use it before leaving my review. It is so lovely, just like the one I used with my Granny when I was a child. The thought and care that has gone into this UK made product is wonderful. It came beautifully packaged, with a little hand written note from Naomi.
    This flower press, along with everything from These Two Hands, would make beautiful gifts, that I would br thrilled to give and to receive. Will definitely be back to order some more beautiful products.
