Plantable Paper Cards

I saw this idea few years ago in Family Fun Magazine to make home made paper cards with flower seeds in them to plant. This year we carried out the idea.

First my son cut up paper. He loves to cut so this was a perfect job for him.
We soaked it all day in water to soften it.
I blended it up then he poured it in.
My neighbor had a paper making kit we borrowed to do all of the steps but there are plenty of tutorials and videos out there on how to make it with just a screen.
I added perennial seeds to the wet paper and then we let it dry.
When all was dry he drew on them and we mailed them off to his grandmas for Mother's Day.

Pin It!
