DIY Rose Shadow Box

Let me tell you a little story. Way back in high school I kept every  flower I was given. Recitals, school dances, you name it. They were dried all over my room, and when the time came, I even took some of them to college with me (so sorry roommates...) That was a different time for me, and while I know some people love to decorate with dried bouquets (which is great), it just doesn't work for me anymore.

But sometimes they're special and trashing them seems a little heartless- wedding bouquets anyone? So what do you do when they're just too sentimental to give the old heave ho- well here's the solution I came up with for mine.

My plan is to keep just one rose from any memorable flowers I receive (at least ones that will dry well)... I'm sure it will take many, many years to fill up this box, but that's kind of the idea.  I think it'll be really special someday down the road- a great keepsake and reminder of good times and important days.

Are you gagging yourself? Ha! Sorry... I knew this would be a sappy post. It is about roses after all.
