With a photo frame, what I'd do is you know how you get those photo frames with glass over the top & a cut out card border ? Well I'd glue the rose petals over the card border to cover it. Then put the glass over the top. The petals will fade with time, but if you keep them out of the light, that will help slow the process. You may like to ask your local craft shop if they have some kind of spray on laquer stuff that could seal them in better so they don't fade.
I was going to suggest on your funeral ideas thread that you chose a significant plant ( like a rose of some kind ) that was in flower now so that you could remember her every year at this time. I'm not sure if you did that or not but that way you could redo the photo frame every year so it looked fresh.
Bath bombs are these fizzy things you put in your bath that you can make yourself. You put essential oils in them usually to fragrance them. I've got a real simple recipe I can dig out if you would like.
If the petals are fragrant, you could macerate them in a odourless base oil like almond to make a scented oil that you could use in massages, in the bath etc.
