Unique Flower Preservation


This isn't really crafty or DIY or scrapbooking, but I wanted to share anyway. If you remember back to December, I wrote a tribute post to my recently passed Grandmother and not so recently both Grandfathers (here). Well cleaning house after Christmas, I rediscovered flowers we saved and dried from the funeral. I know that saving dried flowers often they are forgotten and tend to collect dust. I remembered this mason type jar that I inherited somewhere along the lines and thought how neat it would be to place them in this jar.

I really liked how they looked in the jar and decided to keep them this way. No way for dust to get in and the look kind of like a snow globe or something that holds some kind of magic. I realize this sounds a tad crazy, but I think it looks pretty neat :)

How do you preserve/store flowers from meaningful events?
