Recycled Note Of The Week: Pretty & Plantable

Every week we use this space to feature a recycled note or three from some of our favorite online sources. This week I found an Etsy shop specializing in cards comprised of 100% recycled paper embedded with wildflower, sunflower, spruce and clover seeds. All of the cards sporting the aforementioned seeds can be purchased at Grace Graphics, and my three favorites from the shop are listed below.

Bouquet Of Three

Plant these cards and they grow a gorgeous garden of wildflowers! Yep, that’s right! The seeds are in the paper. The ultimate card for the eco-conscious gift giver!

This set of 3 cards on handmade peach tinted paper is embedded with a blend of wildflower seeds that will grow most anywhere. Printed with earth friendly inks, each card measures approximately 4.25″ x 5.5″ and comes with a recycled brown bag paper envelope.

The inside is blank for your own message; planting directions are included on the back of the card.

(All cards are also customizable!)

Hello Sunshine!

This card features sunflower seeds for planting when you’re done using and admiring the card.

Little Bird On A Branch

This little birdy will produce a plot of wildflowers when planted. Love it.

When Pigs Fly

The pig backside is (my favorite, and) laden with wildflower seeds for planting.
