I have pounded flowers with a small craft hammer before with great results. My son love helping with that one when he was small.

A rubber mallet would work rather nicely...

I'm going to pass this idea along to my eldest. She's finally going to be 'private' pre-school teacher certified this fall and the school director has already scheduled her to have her own classroom three afternoons a week (on top of living on campus and full course schedule). I can see little ones having a very happy time with this one and parents love being able to contribute - flowers, leaves, nuts.

Guess we'll have to 'practice' with my Big Shot so she has some samples, or maybe I just get some really neat papers. Think the Big Shot is a better idea with little ones than fighting with hammers and rolling pins!

I taught preschool at the YMCA quite a number of years ago. They wouldn't even let the boys play cowboys & indians so allowing hammers and rolling pins I think would be taboo as well!

What flowers have you tried that press nicely? I find that a lot of flowers really don't work well. Below are some other flowers I tried. (I'm going to stick with the Cone Flowers.)

Below left: can you guess this weed? Goldenrod!
Middle: another weed I found about a month ago (the blue flower on the left is the actual flower
Right: Fushia

I particularly like the blue and the purple ones. Well done!

I was meaning to show an example of flowers that DIDN'T press well.
I don't even think they'd work for "inchies" (boy are inchies tiny!).

It is getting late in the year around here and not too many flowers are left for pressing. If you have impatiens still available, they look pretty with the Pressed With A Twist Technique.
