I received a beautiful and diverse selection of vintage imagery for use in a collage project I am running. The quality of the papers is excellent and the selection is thoughtful and varied.

I've always wanted a flower press and this one is the perfect size to take with me everywhere! It's small but sturdy too! And it arrived very fast so I'm already using it ♡

I love my new giant flower press! Finally I have enough room, and there's plenty of blotting papers and card too. Thank you!
