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 and card accent color, too. We have a wide assortment of color choices. They are listed below.

If you would like to use our PDF template to make cards to go with the birds, just like those shown in the photos, you can choose it from the drop down menu. It is a file we email to you. If you prefer printed cards, you can choose them from the menu instead. Costs are given there.

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

Different quantities are available by request.

........ HOW to ORDER ........
After you add the item to the cart and go to the next page to checkout, there is a special instructions box 'notes to seller' that you can type into. Please type in your COLOR preferences and details for the card there. 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. If you have any questions, please contact us at: holly [!at] recycledideasfavors.com

.................. PLANTING SEEDS ..................
All paper is made to order to promote freshness. The seeds included in the paper are a mix of annuals, for first year color, and perennials for blooms in the years to follow. Shasta daisies, red and pink poppies, snapdragons, zinnia, cosmos, calendula, cornflowers, columbine, dianthus/Sweet Williams, asters, forget-me-nots, marigolds, and other garden flowers as available. The birds really do grow - those are sprouts growing right out of the paper in the photo. Our plantable paper can be saved and planted when the climate is right. For best results, plant within 12-18 months. Keep dry and out of direct sunlight until you use it.

........... 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:
