flower pressing

flower pressing

hi i'm not really into gardening, thats more of mum's place (hey thats kinda like a pun!) but anyways, my birfday was 2 days ago and my boyfriend sent me flowers and theyre sooooo pretty! i love them I really like the big pink flowers, i think mum said they were lilies, and she said I might be able to press them. So does anyone know if I can do that with these flowers? and how I would do it without a flower pressing thing? cant I do it with lots of big heavy books? Mum said something about special paper...anyways, thanks to anyone who can help me out!
