Microfleur Microwave Flower Press

Posted by kimberly1964 (My Page) on

I recently purchased a 5X5 Microfleur Microwave Flower Press. I pressed a few pansies with this press and they turned out pretty well. The only problem I have with this press is that the front of the pansies stick to one of the fabric sheets. I have to be careful about removing the pansies from the fabric sheet without ripping the pansies. Has anyone else had this problem or am I doing something wrong? Can anyone give me any tips about how to remove flowers from the fabric sheet without messing up the flowers?

Thanks!
Kimberly

I asked my wife, who is the presser in the family, and she said the only solution is patience. Work deliberately, but don't let the flowers completely cool on the sheets.

Use sheets of that white tissue paper, the kind you use as Christmas, between the fabric sheets.
