How to Press a Rose?

Pressing a rose is simple. Simply peel the petals of the rose off (some people cut the stem and keep part of it attached to the petals, you can do this as well). Find a book that you rarely open (preferably a love or inspirational poem) and close the petals or the flower in the book and put away. After about two weeks the rose should be pressed and ready for use in pictures or scrapbooks.
