preserving flowers

Melt wax in a small pan where you can work with your flowers
.......I took one of my roses with a stem on it
...long enough so I could work with it
...swish your flower around and around until the wax has covered your flower
...not the stem
...pull it up with the flower head down for a few seconds to run off the excess wax
...bring it up where the head is up and you are looking at it

....take an egg carton and lay the flowers up a little resting on the egg carton
..... Your flower will last forever and forever
...the only thing you have to do is keep them dusted
.. I hope that you will enjoy this
...I loved it and also it is excellent for those expensive bridal bouqets too
... Have a fun day... Jodie
