WOYWW: Pressing Flowers in the Microwave!

Happy {early!} Wednesday folks! I visited my parents yesterday and then went to my sister’s house where her garden was in full bloom. I had wanted to see if I could press flowers in my microwave (without the pricey Microfluer press) so she sent me home with a mason jar full of phlox and hydrangea. I did figure out how to do it (video tutorial below) and the results are on the table along with some freshly glazed resin (I did a tutorial on making those drying boards Monday), I used Future Floor Wax to glaze them, you can see that in the little apple sauce cup, behind that a new creation I invented called Pinot Grigio with Pineapple juice (not bad) and a big pile of rubber from Lost Coast Designs!

DCF 1.0

I was so excited to share my microwave flower pressing success that I asked my 8 year old daughter to film my process. This was her first time with the camera, I think she did pretty good! Hey, if you pay attention you can get a glimpse of my new kitchen floor.  So as a disclaimer to this video it is the end of the day, I have been traveling and I am quite wilted, the kitchen is a mess and well and I just ate a large dinner.  Just keep that in mind as you watch:)

Another crafty skill to tuck under your belt! I love how it is not too scientific, if it is not completly flat and crispy just zap it a few more seconds, easy!
