Valentine's Day Hearts & Flowers

Posted by on

seeded paper

In Sussex Valentine's Day is also known as the 'Birds Wedding Day'! Watching them in their Spring plummage attracting mates and building nests reminds us how important it is to support and encourage wildlife; we need the birds and the bees if we are to survive which is why using our eco-friendly plantable paper to make Valentine's Day Cards or gift tags is the perfect solution, as it decomposes it grows into beautiful wildflowers.

This Spring we've added pretty berry purple seeded paper to our range. This is an attractive shade of purple, not too dark and not too 'blue' it's perfect to add a pop of colour to a white or cream background.

Of course, red is the tradtional colour of love and hearts made from our bright red seeded paper look nothing less than stunning against any background including black. If you want something a little more subtle, take a look at our coral and pastel pink shades which work well with other pastels.

Whichever shade you choose, be sure to include planting instructions so the recipient can grow their very own flowers as a gift to nature.  Why not copy and paste them from here?

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS - Watch me grow into wild-flowers! Place this paper under a thin layer of soil.  Water well; place in a sunny spot and keep soil moist.
