I've only used the ones that you find in the section with the card making supplies. I can never figure out to dry them without them breaking up or being bulky. I hope someone here has some better suggestions, because that would be a really great idea.
I know you can use silica gel to help them keep their shape and color. You put them in a container that can be sealed (like a glad wear container) and then place the gel around the flower and in between the petals as best a possible and store it for a month or so. But I am not sure how to use the gel to get the flattened surface you would need for the scrapbook. I know you can put them in a book and place heavy objects on the book. But I still would be so scared that they would break.
Maybe you can flatten them out for a day or two where they still have their moisture, and then place them in a container with the gel to dry out. But I am not certain this would work for sure.
