I am planning to ship gum paste flowers to my friend. so How do I ship gum paste flowers? I read about wrapping them in bubble wrap. Anything else to consider and do to make sure the flowers arrive intact and not broken? for the people who buy them online could you let me know how the flowers are when you receive them (wrapped in bubble, foam,etc...)?

Yes, wrp them in bubble wrap and then place foam on the bottom of the box and then lay the flowers on top. Also us foam (squares) in the areas around them to give a cushion to the sides just in case they get shifted. remember BUBBLE BUBBLE BUBBLE WRAP THEM GOOD!! they should be okay for shipping.

Also, when you ship them, place the box that your shipping the flowers in, inside of another box that has be prepared with more cushion/bubble wrap/foam etc just so that the box that has the actual flowers in them have extra protection.

years ago I bought online, they wrapped them in bubble wrap and did not crowd them n they were fine. I now make my own and store them in bubble wrap-- I have dropped them by mistake and they did not break,

What kind of flowers are they? I ship them to people and you need to use different techniques for different flowers.
