I am looking for something to put dried long stem roses into and my wedding bouquet. Does anyone have any idea what I could put these in so they don't get destroyed? Anybody stored these and know of something that works? I have looked for a rubbermaid storage tub to use but can't seem to find one that works. Any ideas would be very welcome. Thanks.

if you go to one of those hobby stores, like a hobby lobby, or a michaels, they sell shadow boxes. do you know what i am talking about? they look like photo frames, but have a space between the backing and the glass. i am not sure that they sell them big or long enough for the long stem roses. but i am pretty sure that one of those shadow boxes can fit the bouquet in. i just let my main center peice of flowers dry up, and then i put them on display on the table in my living room. they were fine there, until little kids got a hold of them and "broke" my center peice. :( so i had to gt rid of them, there was a big mess of dried up flowers all over the glass.

That sounds very beautiful! Wish I had thought of that too!

I put my flowers in between the pages of my wedding memories book so they are like pressed flowers. After a year (on my anniversary) I took out the book from the big ol' rubbermaid bin I have all the wedding stuff in and very carefully sprayed them with a spray shellac you can get from art stores and put them back in the book. Not sure if that is what you had in mind but just thought I would share.:)
