how do I 'mount' pressed flowers?

They've been pressed under a very heavy object for 6months+. I want to put them onto a page in a scrap book but don't know how. Do I just use sellotape?

It would seem glue is your best bet.

Thank you for posting this, it gave me a great idea for my mum's Christmas present!

Happy to oblige!
I'm wondering whether spraymount might do the trick.

I've done pressed flower pictures in the past for which I used tiny dots of PVA glue on a cocktail stick to stick them down. It's best to put the glue on places that it won't show through the petals. Mind you, if it's in a scrapbook that will be flicked through from time to time, I wonder if you'd be as well putting sticky plastic over it - like this type of stuff. Are the flowers just dotted on otherwise decorated pages or as an arrangement?
