You’ve got some beautiful flowers. Maybe you got them from your garden, or you got the most beautiful flower delivery. And now you want to include these flowers in your next resin project. Here’s how you can dry flowers with parchment paper.
Step 1: Select your petals
Pick several fresh petals and place them onto parchment paper.
Step 2: Cover the petals
Cover them with another layer of parchment paper. Next, fold a larger piece of parchment paper to fold around your flowers, making a ‘sandwich.’ Then, rest the sandwich on a piece of cardboard. Finally, place a heavy book on top.
💡 Pro tip: Because of moisture, change the outer parchment paper layer every two to three days. You don’t want the flower petals to mold.
Step 3: Uncover the petals
This is the fun part of how to dry flowers with parchment paper — the reveal! This is how the flowers look after drying for two weeks with parchment paper.
Easy. All you need is parchment paper and a heavy book.
Colors stayed true.
Took two weeks to dry.
You must check the drying process since the paper needs to be changed every couple of days. That means you can’t leave the flowers for a couple of weeks like you can with flower desiccant.
Overall, the process is pretty easy. The colors are preserved well, and these are ready to use in clear resin.
