I have made the mistake of storing FONDANT flowers in a airtight container. When I went to open them, all the flowers drooped.!!!

Will gumpaste do the same thing? If so, how do I store dried gumpaste flowers?

Thank you

I prefer to store things like this in a non air tight container. I cake box will protect them from dust and the sunlight but won't hold any moisture in.

once the gumpaste flowers are totally dry, I store them in plastic storage boxes with lids. I also sit them on some foam padding to keep them from breaking if someone jostles the box.
