** 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.
