My grandmother has spent years pressing four leaf clovers in books. I used a store bought flower press given to me as a child as a template and made one of my own for her for Christmas. I tried to "mod podge" some reeds on the cover for decoration. The flowers or clovers dry between blotting paper in the stack and are "pressed" by tightening the wingnuts on the overall stack.

This is great! I might have to try something like this for pressing my paper.

That's terrific!  I had one of those when I was a kid and used the heck out of it.  I bet your grandmother will really appreciate the effort you put into making one from scratch.  And the reeds on top look super!
