flowers in a box.

I don’t know about you, but I love receiving flowers. I am pretty picky though. I’m not a big fan of carnations, roses, or any flower that smells like death (you know what I’m talking about?). My favorites are gerber daisies — they don’t have a scent, the come in vibrant colors, and, depending on the color, are long lasting. The mini gerbers last even longer!

3x3,

Since I mostly receive flowers for special occasions like birthdays or monthaversaries (yea, my fiancé and I still celebrate those), I like to keep some dried petals in keepsake boxes. I use the 2″ x 2″ x 3/4″ Amac boxes from the Container Store.

stacks.

I simply fill the box with petals of choice and write the occasion on the box. One time I forgot to label my petals so now they are dubbed ‘mystery flowers’…

mystery.

Maybe one day I’ll create an even bigger project with these boxes. In the meantime, they live in a shoebox and it makes me happy to see my collection grow.

Do you save your gifted flowers, too? Share below!

    Awesome collection! But a shoebox? You need to show that awesomeness off- art installation in the living room! We used to collect sand and little lovelies from the beaches we visit and keep it small jars, but it got out-of-hand, so we stopped. 🙂

  2. Mhmm, my shoebox of memories! 🙂 Oh, I like collecting things off the beach, too. I’m working on a seashell piece right now, but need to collect more shells…
