I'm looking for a great way to store my flowers where they'll be easily accessible for me to use. Being able to store smaller ones and larger ones together would be a huge bonus! I'd love to see some ideas. Thanks!

Here is how I store mine. I keep the flowers in ziplock type storage baggies of various sizes (like you get in the jewelry section of HL). My 4+" flowers I keep in ziplock snadwich baggies. The container they are in is about 12" long, 7" wide and 5" high (saw this same container at HL last week).

Here is an idea I borrowed from my friend Brenda (and others at my LSS). You can use whatever size baggies required. I have three of these: one for large, one for medium, and one for small flowers. I love it!

I don't have a picture yet, but I have mine in the making memories large jars. I can fit all sizes of flowers and alot of them in each jar. I have them sorted by color.

Same here.

I've tried just about every way. But, in the end, clear jars, sorted by color seem to be the solution for me!

Best Of Luck!

Don't have too many flowers. But they are stored in a plastic shoe box.

I do the jars as well. I found big ones like the making memories ones at the dollar store. I'll go take a pic.

I don't have a picture of mine either, but they are plastic jars that peanut butter filled pretzels come... my larger flowers fit in the without being bent too badly. Right now I only have two jars, but I'm waiting on my father-in-law to finish off the one he's working on.

I'm into recycling when I can... smaller flowers are in glass jars that had starbucks coffee in them. You can go see my scrap room for pics of those, I think.

I store mine in little jars that look like mini candy jars from old time stores. I got them at HL for like 75 cents, I think, when they were 50% off. I also have the few colors I have the most of in apothecary jars. What does not fit in there gets put in a plastic box in the closet until I need to reload one of the jars I have out. I do not use flowers all that much, but I have a lot of them. They look so cute and colorful in my room.

i store mine in jars too, but i don't have just matching jars. i bought different sizes from the thrift store, and they work great for the different sizes of flowers i have. i have pics in my gallery, but i have sorted them more by color now, so the pics are a little outdated. i also like to have mine out on display casue they look so pretty!

I got the plastic jars - paper studio or making memories brand - can't remember which - both are about the same. I love it sorted this way. I need to take a pic and post too. I also sorted my buttons and dew drops this way. Looks pretty sitting on my cubes!

Mine are in jelly jars. Just spray painted the lids so they all match.

My friend bought one of those snap closed oarnament boxes. they have dividers in them. she put a different color in each section and its easy to take when you go some where.
