Plantable Paper Birds - Seed Wedding Favor
** Plant them, they grow! **

Each handmade plantable paper bird contains an assortment of perennial and annual flower seeds embedded right inside the paper. Use them as wedding favors guests can take home for a little bit more 'green' in everyone's life. Use them as decorations at table settings, as place cards, on wish trees, and more. Choose the color of birds you'd like for your event, too. We have a wide assortment of color choices. They are listed below. If you would like to use out template to make cards to go with the birds, like those shown in the photos, please let us know. We can email you a standard template or a custom template. Hearts can be included at extra cost.

SIZE: Birds are approximately 3 x 3 inches from beak to tip of tail and belly to tip of wings.

Birds + personalized template to print the banner cards. Regular price: $1.25 per bird; 98 cents ea. for orders of 100 or more. Different quantities are always available by request. The card shown with the birds is an example of the personalized template. You must print yourself. See below for details.

Please type in your COLOR preferences in the 'notes to seller' box that appears during checkout. If no preference is indicated, I will send a random assortment of plantable flower seed birds from the stock I have available at the time of your order.

Colorful flower petals can be added to the paper. They are visible in photo #4, of the mint green bird. We can add the flower petals to any color of paper. They look prettiest with lighter, pastel colors and with white and cream. Please let us know if you would like flower petals to be added to the paper. It is 50 cents each extra to add them per bird.

.................. PLANT THRU 2015 ..................
Seeds are fresh and paper is made to order to promote freshness. The paper is meant for planting through 2015. Seeds included in the paper are a mix of annuals, for first year color, and perennials for blooms in the years to follow. Daisies, poppies, snapdragons, zinnia, cosmos, calendula, cornflowers, columbine, dianthus/Sweet Williams, asters, forget-me-nots, and other garden flowers as available. The birds really do grow - those are sprouts growing right out of the paper in the photo at the right. Plantables can be saved by your guests and planted in the spring or started indoors at any time of year. They must be transferred outside and planted in good soil and plenty of sun and watered regularly for full growth potential.

........... TEMPLATES .........
The standard template is a free PDF with purchase of the birds. We email you a PDF file that prints the planting instructions on one end and the bird graphic on the other end and has a space in the middle where you can lay the plantable bird piece - to look similar to those shown in the photos. It is meant to print using home/office inkjet/laser printers. The standard template prints in shades of gray/black and is not personalized - it just prints the planting instructions, not names. The personalized template prints in color and includes your names/wedding date or other message/text of your choosing, as long as it fits. To print your personalized template in color, you will need to use a color inkjet or color laser printer. Printing on 100-110 lb cardstock is recommended. At checkout, please let us know what color you would like and the personalized text in the 'message to seller' box at checkout.

........... PRINTED BANNER .........
If you prefer to have the banner cards printed for you, the cost is $1 per banner card. You can personalize the cards with names/wedding date or other message/text of your choosing, as long as it fits. You may also choose an accent color. Red is shown. We are happy to print guest names so that you can use the banner cards as place cards. They are $1.50 each. Please contact us before you order if you would like to order the printed banner cards to go with your birds.

........... HERB SEED OPTION .........
Yes, we can make the plantable birds with herb seeds instead.
To order leaves with herb seeds, you will need to add this listing to your cart too:

......... SHIPPING ............
All paper is made-to-order to promote freshness. Through winter, the wait time after an order is placed is about 1-2 weeks before an order of this size ships. Starting in early spring, orders can be expected to take longer, and during peak periods, may take 4 weeks. If you need a rush order sooner than this, please contact me first to see about availability of a rush order. There is a $28 rush order charge that is necessary for faster delivery.

Whenever possible, I time the production and shipment of orders to arrive about 2-3 weeks before the event date to ensure they arrive with plenty of time to assemble or use as you wish, and are also maximum freshness. Please let me know when you need to receive your order by.

Shipping is via Priority mail for all US addresses.
Yes, we do ship internationally (but not to New Zealand) due to customs restrictions on seeds.
