Very pretty. I didn't know that mineral oil would keep the items preserved, or do you add something, like a drop of alcohol?

Ah. Thanks. I had wondered about that, but I couldn't seem to find anything to confirm it. Perhaps I was looking the wrong places? Anyway, I went back and modified the post to correct that.
I haven't added anything to the bottle besides the mineral oil, and the items inside seem to be holding up just fine. Most of these items were dried already, anyway. They've been sitting here for over a month now, and still look great (I took these pictures just a couple of days ago).
Flower petals, however, do not hold up so well. I like your suggestion about the alcohol; perhaps I can try that next time? I'm a little unsure as to what to do about preserving things in the bottles like that. Especially things that haven't been dried already.
At least I finally found a glue that is actually watertight...
