Flowers/ Petals:
•    View the video above.
•    We only need your petals. No stems.
•    Each individual listing will tell you how many petals are required to create your keepsake. Example: Pandora style beads- require 2-3 petals per bead. Bracelets- require 1 medium sized flower to create (a full rose is a good size example). Pendants require between 2-3 and 12-15 petals to create.
•    If you have smaller flowers and/or flowers with small petals, please send a few more blooms.
•    Layer petals between sheets of dry paper towels and fold.
•    DO NOT use any plastic, plastic bags, bubble wrap, etc. This will cause your petals to grow mold. We cannot use petals that have mold.
•    If your flower petals are fresh, please send them overnight.
•    If your petals are completely dry, you can send them priority mail.

•    Enclose in a ziplock bag and seal releasing all the air. Use a second ziplock bag to ensure the ashes are secure.
