Procedure Dried flowersFirst of all, keep in mind that not all the flowers can be dried up. In fact, not all the flowers are apt to be dried because of their inner characteristics. Those who are actually possible to dry are flowers like roses, lavender, daisies, and similar, which have simple and thin leaves and petals. Tulips and Iris, for example have very thick petals which will not allow them to get dried easily. The procedures are several and each one will be compatible to a determinate flower more than other. With some kinds of flowers you can only hang them somewhere in open air. Others can be dried by laying them on a flat surface covering them with newspaper sheets. Just consider to leave them at a distance one from the other and to leave them in the final position you would like them to have.
