Plantable Paper Leaves - Wedding Favor Set
** Plant them, they grow! **

Each plantable paper leaf is chock full of a mix of perennial and annual flower seeds embedded right in the flower seed paper — you can grow the seed paper leaf! Personalized cards are included. Use them for wedding favors, baby showers, memorials and more. The cards offer plenty of space to personalize and customize as you wish. We also offer color printing!

Choose green leaves, fall assorted colors, or specific leaf colors - the options are many! If you have a specific color request that is not listed in the drop down menu, please select 'other' as the color and type the color/s you would like into the notes to seller box at checkout.

Popular choices for leaf color: ivory, tan, beige, brown, sunshine yellow, golden yellow, mustard, butterscotch, orange, burnt orange, red, burgundy/merlot, light/mint green, sage green, kelly green, dark/forest green. Other colors are available by request, too, as are maple leaves, oak leaves, and mulberry leaves (not shown). Birch leaves are shown in green.

With an order, you will receive the following:
- plantable leaves
- custom printed cards
- clear, resealable bags

Leaves are about 3x2 or 3x3 inches and vary in size depending on the type of leaf. Some are wider than 2 inches, but not much more than 3 inches at the widest. The rounded oak leaf (not shown) is the most petite at about 1.5 inches wide. Always the longest dimension is 3 inches. The cards are 3x3 inches, and the bags are sized to fit.

The 'mulberry' leaf is shown here:

............CUSTOM OPTIONS..............
You can choose to have a custom message printed on the inserts. The standard wording is a poem that goes with planting of the leaves. If you would like something else, such as bride and groom's names and wedding date, a favorite quotation, or something else, please provide the wording you would like in the "message to seller" area during checkout. Use the number of characters/words in the poem below as a guide for what will fit.

Take a leaf full of seeds
to plant in a row,
just as our family begins
they too will soon grow.

They will see a lot of sun and
showers,
and as our love grows,
so shall these flowers.

....... HERB SEED OPTION ........
** An herb seed mix can be used instead. If you would like us to use herb seeds, please add this item to your cart to checkout with both items at the same time:

............ PLANT THRU 2016 ............
We make our paper on a made-to-order, on demand, basis to promote maximum freshness. Seeds are fresh and carefully selected for planting through 2016. Seeds included in the paper are a mix of annuals, for first year color, and perennials for blooms in the years to follow: Snapdragons, cosmos, daisies, zinnia, poppies, cornflowers, forget-me-nots, asters, columbine, black-eyed susans, calendula, marigold, lupine, Sweet William, dianthus, and other garden flower seeds as available. Planting is simple but not foolproof: Just plant under 1/4" of fertile soil in warm sunlight and keep damp to grow. Monitor and care for them as needed. Our seed paper has been tested and stays good for germination up to 3 years later. However, we recommend planting the seed paper within 12-18 months for best results. The fresher the paper, the better.

** Because not everyone has time to spare, request our white glove service and have the packages assembled ready-to-go for you inside cello bags (like those in the first photo). Already assembled favors are priced at $3 each. Please contact us if you would like this service prior to your order. You may also buy the cello bags separately. They are 24 cents each to add. Please contact us before you order if you would like to add them. Thank you!


.................... SHIPPING .......................
All paper is made-to-order to maintain freshness. Through fall and winter, most orders ship out after about 5-7 business days, sometimes less, sometimes more. During spring and summer, orders take longer before they are ready to ship, usually 2-3 weeks. 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 sometimes necessary for faster delivery.

If you are ordering in advance, please let me know when you need to receive your order by so I am aware of the 'due date' and can plan for them to arrive at the best time. Thank you! ~ Holly

FALL ORDERS:
We have a vacation planned for October, so if your event is in October or early November, please plan to order by early September to ensure you receive your order in time.

Yes, we ship internationally. Please allow several additional weeks for the shipment of international orders.


........ JUST LEAVES .....
Leaves are available separately:
If you'd like to save some on the cost of favors, you can buy the leaves separately :-) See here:

Please note, these plantable leaves are handmade, not commercially produced, and so they have all of the subtle irregularities that make handmade items so lovely. Seed inclusions and shape vary slightly from leaf to leaf. Each is unique, just like those in nature.
