Here is a leaf press that is small enough that you can take it hiking with you.
-Then it is time to add your leaves between the pages of the press.
- Next use your string, ribbon, rubber band, etc. to hold the press together.
-Now, if you want, you can add some rocks or other heavy object on top of the press to help flatten the leaves.
-Finally after about 2 weeks your pressed leaves should be ready!
One thing I love about this is that it is small enough that you can throw it in your backpack when you are out hiking. That way all the leaves you (or your kids) collect won't be shredded and falling apart even before you get home.
