Flower Frogs ~ Not Just for Florists Anymore ~ Part Two


As we saw in Part One of this brief collectible exploration, the styles of flower frogs are numerous and varied.
But what if you're not into floral arranging? What if you want to showcase the flower frog, and not hide it inside a vase? What else can you do with them?
Here are a few ideas:

1. Business card holder. (see top image)
2. Related to #1, a photo or greeting card holder. Any kind of ephemera holder, actually. I used one to display a flashcard in an Etsy listing. Use them to hold table numbers at a wedding. A sweet botanical print would look lovely on display.

3. Crafts holder. I've seen this for pencils, paintbrushes, scissors, crochet hooks.... Go even further past crafts. Think makeup brushes for your vanity.

4. Decorative / altered art use. If you're more creative than I am, look what you can do! I love the vignette in a cloche look! I've also seen just stacks of flower frogs in a cloche. Like a mini sculpture.

5. Display your collection. Stack 'em on a mantle. Display in a wall hanging soda crate. Intersperse them on your bookshelves.
