Just when you're enjoying your special flowers the most they start to curl at the edges and look less than beautiful. If you pick just the odd flower head or leaves or both just as they are looking their best, pop them in the press and you can continue to enjoy them for years later. Whether someone special has bought you a bunch of flowers of you're a keen gardener, it's an easy way to create beautiful lay flat arrangements which can be hung on the wall or kept in an album. It may be a flower from your wedding bouquet, a special birthday bunch, a Mother's Day bunch from your darling little ones or perhaps even a flower from the day you laid a loved one to rest.
This is a simple press to use: just undo the wing nuts on the underside to open the press and access the cardboard dividers. Inside each divider is a couple of sheets of kraft brown recycled paper to pop your blooms into. When you're done, simply pop the base back on and tighten the wing nuts until you feel some resistance.
The style of the print on the press is a floral display made up of hearts in Black & White. It's a bold and contemporary design, which wouldn't look odd displayed on a shelf or desk.
Most flowers and leaves will be pressed and ready in 3-4 weeks but will last a lifetime once dry and flat.
This press includes:
A wooden flower press approx 14cm x 14cm with a pressing space of 11cm x 11cm.
10 sheets of recycled card, which gives you enough for 5 layers.
6 corrugated cardboard cushioning sheets
4 black threaded bolts and 4 chrome silver wing nuts.
The press will be packaged with a chunky plaited ribbon cord tie and tag and will be posted using a sturdy pizza style cardboard box with some additional cushioning.

Labour & Lustre
Labour & Lustre is an independent, creative woodwork shop, making small batch production pieces for your home and garden. I focus on handmade production techniques and whilst the pieces I make are very much focussed around functionality, I also pride myself on the use of high quality raw materials with unique characteristics.
I work closely with local sawmills to source raw materials to work with. Every single piece of hardwood timber I use is handpicked by me for its character, grain and quality. Most pieces of timber are milled from storm fallen trees and have been air drying for a number of years. This gives each piece I create a unique history and character which cannot be recreated. You can be assured each piece is unique to you, a one off!
