Floral Crafts: Preserving Mother's Day flowers

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. As I mentioned on this post flowers are one of the most popular gifts Mothers receive. Did you give your Mom a bouquet? Did you know they can be preserved! 
First you will need to separate flowers and leaves. When cutting your flower stems make sure you leave about an inch. This will help to pick and remove them from the Silica Gel once they are dry. Follow my Preserving Flowers in Silica Gel tutorial. Find step by step instructions.

The best flowers to preserve are those that are not fully opened like the roses on the images above. Check the bouquet and start the process!
