Now that you’ve seen the finished product, let me take you back to the beginning … before these cards were born…when they were just an idea in my head!
Plantable paper is a great way to extend the longevity of your cards and make sure they’ll serve a special purpose in the life of each recipient.
You can use any paper you like. This is a great way to up-cycle old newspapers, mail or paper crafting scraps.
*hint: given the thickness of PTI cardstock, allow the shredded cardstock to soak in the water before blending it. This will soften the paper and result in smoother pulp*
I like the look of the seeds on the flower, so I let them be visible. You can certainly hide the seeds by using the back of the paper as the front of your flower.
With all of that done – just add the flower embellishments to a card or tag!
You can even pair this up with a sweet miniature terracotta pot, a bag of potting soil to complete the gift.
And on the inside of the card – a little rhyming ditty to instruct the recipient!
I’ve been wanting to include more involved projects on my blog for a while, and now, I can finally check that off my list!
Now – get back to hopping through those blogs! There is tons more inspiration waiting for you!
