Family Fun with Flower Pressing Art | mimi mono

Here at mimi mono, we are nature lovers and are always looking for fun ways to integrate that into our lives, aside from what we wear. Cultivate your green thumbs even when you are indoors and do not have any experience, which makes flower pressing the perfect art activity with your little one! Pressed flower art consists of drying flower petals and leaves to flatten. As most flowers soon wither once plucked, one way to preserve them is by pressing. This activity is a simple way to teach your child about preserving a moment in time and beauty.

奈美良一是一個有質感,有溫度的生活美學品牌。除了在穿著方面,我們尋找著不同有趣的方法把自然融入日常生活之中。押花 — 一門即使你沒有任何經驗,也可以讓一雙平平無奇的手化作為綠拇指,製作出美麗的押花。押花藝術是由乾燥花瓣和葉子壓平而成。由於大多數花朵在採摘後很快就會枯萎,因此保存它們的一種方法就是把其壓平。

 

What you'll need 所需材料: 

  • A collection of flowers or leaves 一些花朵和葉子
  • Glue 膠水
  • Scissors 剪刀
  • A heavy book 一本書
  • 2 X parchment papers 2張紙
  • Paper backdrop 背景紙
  • Photo Frame 相框

What to do 製作方法: 

1. Collect some colourful flowers and leaves (please do not pluck from public land!)  

收集顏色鮮豔的花朵和葉子。(但切記請勿在公眾地方採摘!)

2. Lay them flat on parchment paper and ensure that they do not overlap with each other.

把花朵和葉子平放在紙上,請確保它們不會重疊。

3. Cover with another piece of parchment paper and lay a heavy hardcover book on top.

用另一張紙把它覆蓋著,然後用有重量的書壓在紙上。

4. Leave them to dry for a few day. 

放置數天

5. Once flattened and dried, lightly brush with glue on the back of the flowers and petals and attach them to a new piece of paper, which will be the backdrop.

待壓平和風乾後,可以在花朵和花瓣上輕輕地塗上膠水,然後移到新的背景紙上。

6. Lastly, allow the glue to dry before framing.

待膠水凝固後,就可裝上相框。
