Plantable Paper Lions
** Plant them, they grow! **

Each plantable lion (or other plantable animal/shape of your choice) is chock full of a mix of perennial and annual flower seeds embedded right in the paper — a cool animal kids can grow. Simply cover with a thin layer of soil, keep damp and watch the seeds grow!

You will receive the following with the purchase of this listing, and assembly is needed:
biodegradable 2" pots
3x3" gift boxes
tissue paper in white or rainbow (not specific) colors
plantable lions (or other animal) - your choice color
plantable mini hearts to tie on
planting instruction cards
personalized occasion cards
..optional soil pellets..

Please contact me if you would like to order a different number of plantable favors, or a different style of favor. Other favor styles and costs are listed below.

** Please note: No live plants are included in the favors, only the plantable paper with seeds in it.**

SIZE: Lions are 3 inches wide, 2.5 inches tall. Animals vary in size but always the largest dimension is around 3 inches tall or wide. Lambs are slightly longer and are just under 4 inches long. Monkeys, foxes, and giraffes are small and sweet - 3 inches x 1.3 inches, while polar bears, gorillas, elephants, and tree frogs have a larger larger feel because they are wider - 3 inches x 2.5 to 3 inches depending on shape. Larger animals will need to have legs, tails, etc tucked into the pots.

OTHER FAVOR STYLES:
Lions/animals all by themselves are $1 each. Bag favors are shown in the third picture. Those include a plantable lion/animal, personalized poem/cards, and resealable clear bags. $1.30 each. Box favors are $3.80 each (without soil pellets) and $4.30 each with soil pellets. They need assembly because the boxes ship flat. If you'd like a particular style of favor that isn't listed, please contact me using the link below. It's easy!
