** Plant them, they grow **
Each handmade plantable paper boot comes loaded with flower seeds embedded right inside the paper. They can be planted to grow! These make very cheerful and useful wedding favors, table decorations, place cards and more. The imaginative and affordable favors make a memorable gift and a great conversation-starter. The photos show some of the available options for cards (if you order cards with the boots) and also what the boots look like with hearts tied on. See below for costs.

The cards and boots will need to be tucked into the bags upon arrival. For the hearts, if you would like to do a little DIY, we can include a pack of hearts for 25 cents per heart (pre-hole punched) so that you can tie them onto the boots on your own.
If you're looking for plantable boots that grow herbs specifically, this is the listing for you. You will need to add it to your cart too, and check out with both items at the same time:

******************* PLANT IN 2014 *********************
Seeds are fresh and hand-gathered for planting in 2014. Seeds included in the paper are daisies, poppies, snapdragons, zinnia, cosmos, calendula, forget-me-nots, marigold, sweet Williams/dianthus, columbine, asters, and cornflowers. They are a mix of annuals, for first year color, and perennials for blooms in the years to follow. Growing is simple - just tuck them under a thin layer of soil and keep wet to grow.
............ SHIPPING ..............
Wherever it's possible, I recommend to time the production and delivery of the paper so that it arrives about 2-3 weeks before the event for which it is needed. This helps preserve the seed paper's freshness and allows me to schedule orders according to a 'due date'. Please let me know when you need to receive your order so I can time it properly. Thank you!
Through winter, the wait time after an order is placed is about 1-2 weeks before most orders ship. In spring and summer, orders typically takes 2-4 weeks before they ship out. If you have concerns or need a rush order sooner than this, please contact me first. There is a $28 rush order charge that is necessary for faster delivery on most orders.
Yes, we do ship Internationally. International orders valued over $100 must go by shipping service with tracking.
OTHER PLANTABLE FAVOR PACKAGES:
Boots are made out of 100% post-consumer content handmade paper that is made one sheet at a time using traditional papermaking techniques. The boots are then individually cut out of the paper.
