This listing is for the 5 sheets of dusty purple handmade paper. They measure approximately 8.5 x 5.5 inches each. Each sheet of paper varies in thickness and weight, and has a lovely feathery edge for which handmade paper is known.
Your 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 purple cone flower, red poppy and blue flax!
I have been making by hand since 1992 using the same techniques the Chinese used when they invented papering thousands of years ago! This paper is made from the freshest, highest quality seeds I can buy — 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 - you can see them popping out of the paper! I use the best scraps that I can find, saturated with color. 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 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!

STORING YOUR PAPER: You can store your 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 plant 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. 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!
