Now it is sitting on one of the shelves in my closet. I plan on taking out a few of the flowers for when I get the time to make my shadow box.

I kept some of the peonies and put them in a shadow box. The succulents were repotted.

My dad took it home and removed most of the succulents so he could re-pot them. They are thriving! I kept two of the kiwi succulents too, and ended up tossing the dried bouquet.

You can use silica sand grains to preserve the flowers. It seems pretty cool. The flowers of my bouquet are still sitting in the box of silica, so it will be fun to see how they will turn out.
