If you want to honor and recognize the teacher in your child’s life with a special gift, these plantable paper apples will be the kind of fruit that will surprise and delight any teacher.

This listing is for 10 red apples, with a little brown stem and green leaf, measuring approximately 3 inches in height. These apples come with a double-sided tag. One side of the tag includes a poem just for the teacher in your life:

Every day, you plant seeds of knowing,
Though the harvest you may never see.
But with hope, you continue sowing,
To plant young minds with what could be.
And tend to the flowers and the weeds,
To find what is hidden in a seed.

On the other side of the tag is my original planting instructions poem:
In this paper, little seeds lay asleep,
Waiting to be planted in soil 1/4 inch deep.
Water well then keep moist for 4 to 6 weeks.
Until little plants come out of the soil for a peek.
Many flowers will share their colors to the max.
Like purple cone flower, red poppy and blue flax!

Hand one out to everyone in the class to write a message of thanks and deliver to the teacher, tuck one into a card or wrap them up and give them as a present. Your teacher can even use them as a lesson in the classroom by putting them in a terrarium and forcing the seeds to sprout with the kids. Or use them as incentive awards in the classroom. Of course, you can use them as favors at a graduation party, too! If you are having an orchard-themed wedding, these plantable paper apples would be the perfect conversation starter when used as place cards.

This paper has been made using recycled paper more than 40 wildflower seeds that are never genetically modified. These seeds can be planted in conditions ranging from full sun to half shade, and in soils from sandy, clay or acidic to moist or dry. Flowers will happily bloom from the Northeast to the Southwest. Take a look at the last photo to see an example of my seeded paper sprouting!

---------------> Here's all "the dirt" on my plantable papers:

STORING YOUR PAPER: You can store our plantable paper in any cool (not freezing) dry place that is not subject to extreme temperature variations. Some products come packaged in an acid-free plastic envelope. If you will not be using your plantable paper for a while, please open the plastic packaging so the seeds can breathe. For best germination, you should plant your paper within 12-18 months of purchase.

PLANTING YOUR PAPER: To force your plantable paper indoors, simply moisten the paper until damp but not wet, put in a plastic jar and cover with plastic wrap. Place in a warm, sunny window and you will see little seedlings in about 2 weeks! If planting outdoors, wait until all danger of frost has passed, then rake the soil, scatter the paper onto the soil, cover with 1/4 inch of topsoil, water and keep moist until germination, approximately 6 to 8 weeks.

Frequently asked questions about PulpArt

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.
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.
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! 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.
When I package up an order, I print a shipping label in my studio. Once the label is printed, an email is automatically sent with tracking info, but your package has not been shipped yet. When I drop off the package at the post office, it is scanned with the postal gun. The postal folks don't transfer that information from the gun to their computer system until after 5 pm when they upload the scans into their computer. It can still take a few more hours for tracking info to appear on the website. If you have been sent an email with tracking but it isn't showing up, just check back a few hours later or the next day.
