Any time you would like to show a little love, use these whimsical plantable paper tags to scatter around a table as a decoration, write a love note, use as a place card at an eco-friendly wedding, or attach to a favor bag at a birthday party, baby shower or bridal shower, or hand out at a Valentine's Day party.

This listing is for 10 light pink hearts, approximately 3.5 inches across at the widest point, packed with seeds. Every batch of my paper gets a huge scoop of seeds for the most germination possible.

Each order comes with the following playful planting instructions:
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!

I have been making beautiful artisan paper by hand for more than 20 years and put all that experience into making the very best product. I buy only the freshest, highest quality seeds — I never use hand-gathered seeds that might not pass quality control standards. In keeping with my environmental standards, I never use seeds that have been genetical modified.

I use the best scraps that I can find, saturated with color. No dyes or bleaches are used to create my paper - the color comes only from the scraps.

This paper has been made using recycled paper and more than 40 annual and perennial wildflower seeds. (For a full list of seeds, please refer to my Shop Policies.) 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 a sample of paper sprouting!

---------------> Here’s what customers are saying:

“These are everything I hoped they would be. I would work with you again any day!”

“These were perfect, arrived when promised, and made the wedding couple very very happy. Thank you SO much!”

“This is exactly as it was advertised, but better than I expected. I loved the thank you note that was hand written. That made me feel special and that every single customer is important to you. I received my package much faster than I anticipated. I cant wait to see what grows from these! Thank you so very much.”

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

STORING YOUR PAPER: Store your 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 plant 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. 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!

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.
