Drying tulip petals

tulip_petalsOctober 16, 2006


I am new to this forum. I got a bouquet of tulips, and the petals are falling off in four days =(

I would like to save them and store them as a special memory. How do I dry these petals and maintain its color. I am not even sure if this is possible but I have heard thats rose petals are stored like this.

You can air dry them by laying them out on a stack of newspaper or you can press them between sheets of white paper, weighed down by heavy books or bricks. You want to use several sheets of white paper between layer of petals and leave space around each one. Do not layer them. After 3-7 days your petals should be dry.
