PRESERVING PRECIOUS PETALS

If you want to preserve flowers -- from a prom, wedding or graduation or for craft creations -- Universal Flowers has just the product in Forever Flowers, a liquid flower preservative.

Each flower is prepared by simply dipping it into this patented substance for one to three seconds. The flower dries in minutes and remains pliable and soft to the touch.

Light-colored flowers, such as yellow, pink, white and peach, take on an antique finish. Darker-colored flowers hold their tone, and take on a satiny sheen. Choose from seven floral fragrances.

Forever Flowers comes in a 1.5-quart container with step-by-step instructions. Each kit will preserve 100 to 200 flowers, depending on their size.

Price: $29.95
