How to securely package your flowers (foliage is really important to enclose also as this enhances the beauty of the paperweights).
You Will Need.
- 1 Empty Container
- Kitchen Roll
- Parcel Tape
Note: Please use a plastic container such as a Tupperware or Ice Cream Box. If possible, avoid using a cardboard box, as these are much more likely to become damaged, or get wet during transit. Also before sending your flowers we would like to remind you we DO NOT return any boxes.
Before sending your flowers to us please place your deposit online – this will then generate you a reference number for your order with us.

Have you read through our FAQ on the flowers which are difficult to preserve – if not take a moment to have a look or send us an image first to ; [email protected] or whats app to 07825653308
FLOWERS RECEIVED AFTER SEPTEMBER 1ST 2021 WILL NOT BE COMPLETED INTO CREATING A KEEPSAKE PAPERWEIGHT UNTIL EARLY 2022 AS THE FLOWERS WILL NEED 16/20 WEEKS MINIMUM TO PRESERVE INITIALLY.THIS PROCESS IS VITAL IN OUR PROCESS AND RUSHING THIS FIRST PART COULD DAMAGE THE FLOWERS.
Steps for sending fresh flowers
- On the bottom of the tupperware box place a layer of kitchen roll (this retains the moisture within the flowers much better and place a little water on this to make moist).
- Wrap dry kitchen roll JUST around the bottom of the flower stalks and foliage, then cover with cling film approx 2-8″ in length
- Cover flowers with another layer of Kitchen roll and SEAL THE BOX
- Keep flower heads away from the edge of the box ( as this may bruise the flower head inside )
- Ensure your name and address is clearly marked within the package.
