Custom paperweights respectfully created from your loved one's funeral flowers
Isn't this a better way to memorialize your loved one?
Custom Memorial Paperweights from Your Loved One's Funeral Flowers
I offer an optional photo editing service of placing an image of your loved one on the base of the paperweight. It can include their name and birth and death dates, or whatever you wish to make it a special heirloom to cherish. I will edit any image to fit the paperweight base and delete any background "clutter". I can work with a large "digital" image that you can e-mail me, or, from an original photograph. You can send your favorite photograph with your flowers and I will be sure to send it back to you in perfect condition.

Paperweights are made of handcrafted glass made in America and share characteristics indicative of handcrafted glassware. These include small imperfections that should not be considered flaws or irregularities.
There are two ways to use your flowers and certain paperweights work best for the two different styles.
If your flowers are fresh, I can press them and create a beautiful pressed flower design.
If your flowers have dried already, or you have had them for a bit and they are wilting, then you can air dry them to be used as "confetti" style paperweights. This works best for the heirloom or heart paperweight. Click here for more detail in preparing and sending me your flowers.

The all resin Mini Dome can hold special mementos as well as flower petals.
