This is amazing. A beautiful craft like this can be given as present.

I am not absolutely sure, but dried flowers can be placed in a box filled with absorbent material such as silicon and this will dry them out and they will be sort of in the same dimension whereas pressed would be flattened like pressed in a book or ironed and therefore would be flat. That is what is used here, flat flowers that fii into the form. Pretty project and would be a lovely way to make a keepsake for a special occasion ....

What a neat idea! These look like timeless treasures! While it looks very easy to make, my question would be what is the difference between dried flowers and pressed flowers. I am very eager to make a few of these with my children and I am thinking different colored pansies would be stunning!

I love this How To Make Pressed Flower Sun catchers idea. I don't remember how to dry the flowers though? I'll have to do a Google search, I was hoping it was added in this how to but it wasn't. But this is a nice, neat way to save that beautiful flower. I'm looking forward to making these after I dry the flowers. Thank you so much for sharing this free how to.
