You will receive the 45 tags pictured here, sprinkled with yellow calendula (aka marigold) flower petals, measuring approximately 2.25 x 2.75 inches, with a piece of soft white wool string included for attaching to a gift or for use as a product hang tag or favor for a wedding, a birthday party, baby shower or other special event. The flower petals have bled a little bit so there are splashes of yellow throughout the tags.

These tags have been made using recycled paper and a mix of perennials seeds. The seeds include Cornflower, Siberian Wallflower, Ox-Eye Daisy, Shasta Daisy, Lance-Leaf Coreopsis, Plains Coreopsis, Cosmos, Wild Cosmos, Wild Larkspur, Sweet William, Purple Coneflower, California Poppy, Perennial Gaillardia, Baby's Breath, Wild Annual Sunflower, Dame's Rocket, Rose Mallow, Scarlet Flax, Blue Flax, Perennial Lupine, Baby Blue Eyes, Red Poppy, Mexican Hat, Gloriosa Daisy, Black Eye Susan and None-so-Pretty.

These tags began their life as a tree, then spent their second life as bills, junk mail and other forms of paper. I sorted through the paper and chose the highest-quality pieces to shred, make into a pulp and reform into a new piece of paper. (You have to start with high quality paper to end with high quality paper!)

Because I recycled previously manufactured paper, I have created new paper that already has sizing in it. This means that you can write on the tags and the ink won't feather or bleed. (One side of the tag is smooth for writing on; the side shown in the photo is the bumpy side with all the seeds.) After this paper has been used as gift tags or product hang tags, it can be planted and begin its fourth life as bed of gorgeous flowers!

Simply 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.

Take a look at the last photo to see a sample of the plantable paper that is growing on my window sill! Each order comes with the following insert:

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!

Frequently asked questions about PulpArt

I ship every day, Monday through Friday, via USPS First Class mail. I wait until the afternoon to take orders to the post office to capture as many orders as I can. (But I will go early in the day if my customer has a time issue like an Express Mail drop-off.) So it may take as long as 24 hours for your package to be shipped but it is often much less. And if you want to know a little secret, I live within walking distance from a post office so sometimes, and especially on nice days or if I have an errand to run, I will make a second trip to mail something if I get a sale late in the day. I often ship on Saturdays, even though I officially say that I ship Monday through Friday.
I do not wholesale my plantable products but I do wholesale my Petal People pressed flower art cards. Please inquire for more information.
Because of customs regulations for shipping live seeds to other countries, I do not offer international shipping on my plantable products but do ship my Petal People cards internationally.
Because I get so many donation requests, I have had to limit those charities to whom I donate. I now only donate locally, and to companies and charities with whom my family is directly involved.
Yes! However, I am very selective who I give my products to, and I don't give them very often. I will need proof of a certain amount of consistent readership, as well as evidence of cross-promotion on social media, and a well-established presence in either the crafting world, wedding market or another audience that hits my target customer base.
When I package up an order, I print a shipping label in my studio. Once the label is printed, an email is automatically sent with tracking info, but your package has not been shipped yet. When I drop off the package at the post office, it is scanned with the postal gun. The postal folks don't transfer that information from the gun to their computer system until after 5 pm when they upload the scans into their computer. It can still take a few more hours for tracking info to appear on the website. If you have been sent an email with tracking but it isn't showing up, just check back a few hours later or the next day.
