craft for preserving marigolds

I've got a ton of marigolds I would like to somehow preserve. Either whole or separated petals. I'd like to preserve the color and fragrance if possible. Anyone have any ideas the best use of all these marigolds would be? Thanks!

RE: craft for preserving marigolds

I will chime in here.....a little late. I'm wondering if you mean "preserving" or drying and/or pressing? I "preserve" lots of green materials with glycerine. Have not tried it for Marigolds so not sure if it would work.
