Dried Roses

Take a plastic box about the size of a shoebox and put an inch of silica in the bottom.

GENTLY place the roses (5 to 8 depending on size) in the silica for support.

GENTLY sprinkle the silica over the roses until covered (being careful not to distort the flowers).

Tap box to settle silica and top up as needed.

Place in microwave for 2 min. on high (if silica is cold).

Leave overnight to cool and finish the drying process (Leaving them in the silica supports and keeps flowers in their original form).

Remove flowers from silica gently tapping rose to remove any residue.

Any flowers can be dried in this way, but just use one layer in the microwave.
