Plantable Paper

Why send flowers when you can send paper that will grow flowers? Cool, right?! We are so head over heels for this new craft and I will give you the quick run down, but as always my full details are over here, at Kiwi Crate!
 We added some paper scraps and newspaper to our blender and let it sit in hot water for a few minutes.
 Next, I blended it up to make this lovely mush.
 The kids loved smashing it all down on sheets of felt on top of paper bags....this stuff was soaked!
 Seeds of life! I used a packet of wild flower seeds and we pressed them into our sheet of paper.
 With a few days of drying which included a felt transfer on day two we had a beautiful sheet of plantable paper.
 We cut sweet shapes from our paper. Some got planted and some got gifted.
But, we had to leave one out to water and watch as our little seeds sprouted. Very beautiful.
