This listing is for a DEPOSIT towards any CUSTOM ORDER of plantable handmade paper tags. The items in the photos are example of past work I have made. They are not available for sale. If you would like a custom order, please send me a convo with your questions and desires and I will respond with an exact quote for work, shipping and the deadline for your order to be completed.
Tags can be made in a rainbow assortment of colors and sometimes I can even come very close to matching a specific color. Please take a look at the photos for examples of tags that I have made for other customers. Tags are available in the following sizes:
2.25 x 2.75 inches are 35 cents each
4.25 x 2.75 inches are 70 cents each
4.25 x 5.5 inches are $1.40 each
Tags can have a hole and a piece of string added for no extra charge up to 50 pieces. Over 50 pieces, I charge an additional $5 per 50 count to have a hole and string added. The price covers up to two colors per order. Each additional color is $15 per color.
Each order comes with the following playful planting instructions:
In this paper, little seeds lay asleep,
Waiting to be planted in soil 1/4 inch deep.
Water well then keep moist for 4 to 6 weeks.
Until little plants come out of the soil for a peek.
Many flowers will share their colors to the max.
Like baby blue eyes, purple cone flower and blue flax.
Plantable papers are a new exciting, eco-friendly place card for your wedding, but they also make great gift tags and product hang tags. I have made custom orders for baby showers, birthday parties, memorial services, bridal showers and other special events; I have recycled paper that had a silver coating and added glitter for a silvery paper used as hang tags on silver jewelry; I have created papers with patchouli and lemon grass in them as packaging for handmade soaps with patchouli and lemon grass in the soap; I have even made plantable paper prayer cards for a funeral that were planted in memory of the loved one. Plantable paper makes a great teacher gift, especially for a science teacher who can then sprout the paper as a science experiment! It's fun for a home-schooling project, too.
I have been making paper by hand since 1992 and am extremely proud of the caliber of my product! I buy only the freshest, highest quality non-GMO seeds — I never use hand-gathered seeds that might not pass quality control standards. Every batch of paper gets a generous scoop of seeds, ensuring the most germination possible. I use the best scraps that I can find, highly saturated with color, from the recycling bins of local printing houses. There is no ink to muddy the color or weak fibers that yield a weak paper. I don’t use any dyes or bleaches to create my paper - the color comes only from the scraps.
This paper has been made using recycled paper and more than 40 annual and perennial wildflower seeds. These seeds can be planted in conditions ranging from full sun to half shade, and in soils from sandy, clay or acidic to moist or dry. Flowers will happily bloom from the Northeast to the Southwest, gardening zones 2-8. Take a look at the last photo to see a sample of my paper sprouting!
You can write on this paper. One side is bumpy with seeds and the other is smoother for writing on. (Use a fine point Sharpie for best results!)

---------------------------------> Here's all "the dirt" on my plantable papers:
STORING YOUR PAPER: You can store our plantable paper in any cool (not freezing) dry place that is not subject to extreme temperature variations. Some products come packaged in an acid-free plastic envelope. If you will not be using your plantable paper for a while, please open the plastic packaging so the seeds can breathe. For best germination, you should plant your paper within 12-18 months of purchase.
PLANTING YOUR PAPER: To force your plantable paper indoors, simply moisten the paper until damp but not wet, put in a plastic jar and cover with plastic wrap. Place in a warm, sunny window and you will see little seedlings in about 2 weeks! If planting outdoors, wait until all danger of frost has passed, then rake the soil, scatter the paper onto the soil, cover with 1/4 inch of topsoil, water and keep moist until germination, approximately 6 to 8 weeks.
