a leaf press- or two

This is sort of a pre post as I'm planning to do something with M and T. recently we went for a walk to collect lots of different types and colours of leaves while hubby made up these presses. They're just 2 planks of wood with holes drilled in each corner for a bolt and nut.

We lay leaves on pieces of newspaper and stacked them on top of eachother as we went. We then tightened the bolts so that the leaves were as squished as possible. Doing up the bolts with the bolt tightener thingee was a hit ( I can see my husband cringing at that as I'm sure that's not what it's called!).
