Pressed flower art can be super personal and thoughtful. Did your boyfriend buy you some roses for your birthday? Press them to make some beautiful art for your house together. Or do you buy your girlfriend the same bunch of flowers every year? Why not mix it up and try pressing some flowers instead! Or perhaps make it a fun activity for you to do together?
