********** This listing is for a tutorial in PDF format. The tutorial gives instructions for making plantable paper Seed Bombs, like the ones I have made in the photos. This is not a listing for finished items. No raw materials are included. **********

Plantable papers are a new exciting, eco-friendly addition to your wedding. Make them, put into an organza bag and use as a favor or place card at your eco-friendly or garden-themed wedding. They make great conversation starters at baby showers, birthday parties, bridal showers and other special events. Add Forget-Me-Not flower seeds to your seed bombs and plant them in remembrance of a loved one. Plantable paper makes a great teacher gift, especially for a science teacher who can then sprout the paper as part of a botany lesson.

Making your own plantable handmade paper Seed Bombs is a simple project, great to do with kids, and requiring simple household items. Great for crafters looking to recycle junk mail and all the various papers that come into your life. A wonderful project for an engaged couple looking to save money for their wedding. Even a terrific project for a family of home-schoolers who want to recycle while learning. To make your own seed bombs, you will need a blender, a sieve, scrap paper such as junk mail and flower seeds. Anything else you need are common household items.

This tutorial comes with detailed instructions — 9 pages including detailed, high-resolution photos! — explaining how to make these playful paper balls like the ones pictured, a list of everything you need to make them as well as tidbits of knowledge that I have learned over the years in working with wildflower seeds and handmade paper. I have been making paper by hand since 1992!

Some recent feedback about my seed bomb tutorial:

"Just what the doctor ordered! Super easy-to-follow directions; clear, high resolution photos. The seller was also super helpful after my purchase when I emailed her a troubleshooting question. (It was my own user error, which I already knew: I made some of my seed bombs too big, causing them to take longer to dry, which caused some of the seeds to sprout.) Within one hour (59 minutes to be exact!), she shot me back a reply which answered all my questions and put my fears to rest."

Frequently asked questions about PulpArt

Nope! Please read why I don't use these seeds in my plantable paper in my blog post here: http://paperandpulp.blogspot.com/2014/11/dont-eat-your-paper.html
I ship every day, Monday through Friday, via USPS First Class mail. I wait until the afternoon to take orders to the post office to capture as many orders as I can. (But I will go early in the day if my customer has a time issue like an Express Mail drop-off.) So it may take as long as 24 hours for your package to be shipped but it is often much less. And if you want to know a little secret, I live within walking distance from a post office so sometimes, and especially on nice days or if I have an errand to run, I will make a second trip to mail something if I get a sale late in the day. I often ship on Saturdays, even though I officially say that I ship Monday through Friday.
Yes! I make all of my handmade paper from 100% post-consumer waste. I rely on several different sources to supply me with paper scraps, which means the colors I have on hand can vary over time. I usually have a rainbow assortment of colors and have become quite adept at mixing and combining scraps to come up with custom colors but I can't always make every color. (Eggplant is a much-requested color that I have not managed to produce.) I can get very close to most colors, and have even almost exactly matched a few, too.
I do not wholesale my plantable products but I do wholesale my Petal People pressed flower art cards. Please inquire for more information.
Because of customs regulations for shipping live seeds to other countries, I do not offer international shipping on my plantable products but do ship my Petal People cards internationally.
Yes! I actually wrote an entire blog post about it that you can read here: http://paperandpulp.blogspot.com/2014/12/i-can-write-right.html
Because I get so many donation requests, I have had to limit those charities to whom I donate. I now only donate locally, and to companies and charities with whom my family is directly involved.
Yes! As long as you store as suggested above, your seeds will be fine. But remember that seeds are living things. The longer it takes you to plant them, the more their viability will decrease over time. I recommend planting them within 18 months of purchase.
Yes! However, I am very selective who I give my products to, and I don't give them very often. I will need proof of a certain amount of consistent readership, as well as evidence of cross-promotion on social media, and a well-established presence in either the crafting world, wedding market or another audience that hits my target customer base.
I don't. Believe it or not, larger orders actually take more time than smaller ones. And because my paper making equipment gets tied up with bulk orders, it slows down my production time for all new orders. (Plus, it's just me making, photographing, writing, packaging and mailing everything in this one-woman business.) I do have a handful of stores that purchase from me at my prices and then mark up my items to sell in their brick and mortar stores.
