This heart began its first life as a tree, then enjoyed a second life as card stock and other forms of paper. I sorted through the paper and chose the highest-quality pieces to shred and combine with water and seeds to make a pulp and reform into a new piece of paper in the shape of a heart. Then I adhered the handmade heart onto creamy-colored card stock. After this card has enjoyed its third life sharing your message of love, it can be planted and begin it fourth life as the beginning of a wildflower bed! It's a great cycle of reducing, reusing and recycling.
This card is a standard greeting card size (5" x 7") and comes with a matching envelope. It is blank inside, and comes with the following planting playful instructions stamped onto the back:
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!
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!
++++ I cannot ship outside of the United States because customs restrictions on shipping live seeds.
