Red Rose Petals...

So we needed more rose petals for table centerpieces.  If you price petals out you will find that they are quite expensive.  I found a seller on Ebay with a steal.  I got 1000 petals for a few dollars.  The petals would have to ship from China, but reviews were good so I figured I could give it a go.  

Well the petals finally arrived in a small 4x6 envelope.  I opened it to find this...
It's 1000 petals all compressed together.  Each petal had to be separated.  It took three of us about 45 minutes to complete this project.  They were full of static so the petals were literally leaping out of the box even though we were using dryer sheets.  We now have a large shoe box full of petals.
