A Box Full of Bougainvillea (PIF)

I hang-dried these triple-layer bougainvilleas after pressing some as I find the bunches quite thick for my phone directory... So, I am passing it forward for those interested. Great for dried flower arrangements, topiary, and other flower / nature crafts. The advantage of a bougainvillea is that it retains its color for months (I kept some topiary previously for more than 1 year). The box (reinforced) estimated handling and shipping cost is $12. Let me know if you want it and I will list it under PIF in my etsy shop.
