** Plant them, they grow! **
Each skeleton key is embedded with a carefully selected mix of annual and perennial flower seeds. Used as place cards, they make a charming wedding addition that keeps on giving. Daisies, poppies, snapdragons, marigolds, zinnia, cosmos and other pretty garden flowers await guests who plant the seed paper place card. They are also affordable and earth-friendly. Each is made from recycled junk mail and used office paper that will naturally decompose as the plants grow. Just place under a thin layer of soil and keep wet to grow.

..................... SHIPPING ......................
All paper is made-to-order to maintain freshness. Whenever possible, I prefer to time the production and shipment of orders to arrive about 2-3 weeks before the event date to ensure they arrive with plenty of time to assemble, and are also maximum freshness. Please let me know when you need to receive your order by so I can schedule them according to an appropriate 'due date.' Thank you! ~ Holly

If you have concerns or need a rush order sooner than this, please contact me first to check about delivery time frame. There is a $28 rush order charge that is sometimes necessary for faster delivery.
