Preserving the daffodils

11 days since we bought these daffodils, and they're as beautiful as ever as they make their way through their life cycle. 
The stalks are sturdy and upright with a beautiful shade of green, but you can feel the petals slowly drying out.
It's been a long time since I've tried flower-pressing. I remember I received a kit as a little kid, but it's probably buried deep in our storage.
Technically, the best way to press flowers is when they're fresh so these probably won't turn out very well -- but I'd like to try regardless.
I also wanted to press some of the tulip petals
I'll check back here later to see if I can make anything out of them. :)
