Flowers can be decorative, medicinal and magical. Here is a simple and effective way to dry them.

Cut flowers you wish to preserve, with or without stem. Sprinkle borax on the bottom of a small box such as a shoe box. Add up to two flowers. Completely cover with more borax. Tape the box shut. Let sit at room temperature for about one week. When dried completely, strain off the borax powder, may be reused for more flower drying.

Borax is something you find in the laundry isle. It's a natural detergent/cleaner. I use it to make laundry soap, clean the toilet, soap scum in the shower/bath (it's amazing), countertops, anything really... LOL!
