Shipping Instructions for Glass Encasements / Shadow Box Keepsakes

If you would like to create a glass dome or shadow box keepsake from your preserved wedding bouquet or other special event flowers, it is crucial to send them as quickly as possible. Please follow these important steps to help ensure the best results.

Packing supplies you will need: sturdy spacious box so that your flowers aren’t crowded (apx. twice as large as the space your flowers occupy), aluminum foil, 2 disposable ice packs, duct tape, 2 plastic bags (one big enough for your flowers, and another for included paper items), and crumpled newspaper.

  1. Hydrate your flowers first! For flowers with open stems, cut 1 inch from the bottom. To seal in moisture, wrap the severed stems with wet paper towels, then wrap the damp paper towels with aluminum foil.
  2.  Line the bottom of a sturdy cardboard box with foil.
  3. Secure 2 disposable ice packs to the bottom of the box with duct tape.
  4. Place another sheet of foil on top of the ice packs, and add crumpled, dry newspaper over it.
  5. Lightly mist your flowers and put them in an opened plastic bag (flowers should be situated in the center of the box).
    IMPORTANT: LEAVE BAG OPEN FOR AIR TO CIRCULATE. 
  6. Add more crumpled newspaper loosely on top of your bagged flowers.
  7. Any additional paper items you’d like to send or incorporate with your keepsake (ie. registration form, sentimental cards, etc.) should be placed in a sealed bag and included in your box.
  8. Tape the box shut, include your return address and label it in large letters “THIS SIDE UP” and “FRAGILE“. Please include your name and phone number inside your box with the flowers so that we know where the flowers came from.
  9. OVERNIGHT SHIP the box of flowers to:
    Fantastic Blooms Floral Preservation
    8495 Corliss Road
    DeSoto, KS 66018
  10. Please call us after mailing your flowers so that we know to expect them: (913) 586-5126
Shipping Instructions for Petal Jewelry or Previously Dried Flowers

If you would like to create a flower petal jewelry keepsake and have just a few flowers to get preserved, please follow these simple shipping instructions:

  1. Seal your flowers in a small box with enough room not to be crushed or crowded. We recommend the 1-3 business day priority flat rate box from USPS (apx $5.95).
  2. Ship them to:
    Fantastic Blooms Floral Preservation
    8495 Corliss Road
    DeSoto, KS 66018

Please note: Preserved flower petal jewelry can be made from fresh, as well as from previously dried flowers. If you have older flowers from years ago that you’d like to have preserved into a floral jewelry piece, Fantastic Blooms can make it happen!

STEP 3: Make your payment.
