Memory Petals Project

BY: Janelle Cravens / 0 COMMENTS / CATEGORIES: Art Frames

 

The Memory Petals Project is a service we provide to families who have lost a loved one.

Many times, families have an abundance of flower arrangements and they don’t always know what to do with them. We have developed a service that will help with that dilemma.

We can use the petals of flower arrangements from your loved one’s funeral service and infuse them into handmade paper, which we will then use to make mats for picture frames, ornaments or any other item a family may want.

The petals from the flower arrangements are usually clipped into smaller pieces but we can try to use a whole petal in the paper-making process as well.

If you would like to have a memento crafted by the women of Gateway, please let your funeral director know by filling out the request form.  We can pick up the flower arrangement you wish to use or you can stop by Hope Sweet Hope Studios in person.

Celebrate the mother figure in your life!

Remember to thank that special someone, who has shown you love, compassion and guidance. Of course, we have just the gift that says, I LOVE YOU MOM !!

1 Corinthians 13:4-7  – Love is patient; love is kind. Love is not jealous; is not proud; is not conceited; does not act foolishly; is not selfish; is not easily provoked to anger; keeps no record of wrongs; takes no pleasure in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth; love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.
