I saw this idea a few months ago online...and now I can't find where I found it. It would make a wonderful gift, or a wedding/party favor! What is it? Well you make your own seed paper, with a stamped spoon marker of what will grow when you plant the paper!
How to make seed paper.
Take scarp paper, tear it up, and pour water in a bowl and soak it. If you want a certain color of paper, just tear up that color! Or you may be able to dye it some with food coloring?
Either put it in an old blender, or a hand blender. I got this hand blender at goodwill for this very purpose. I'd hate it if it ruined your good blender...goodwill is the way to go.
Now the best thing to get is a screen, and staple it to a photo frame. However, since I didn't have that, I ended up taking some scrap fabric, taking a glob our, and rolling it in the fabric to flatten and squeeze the water out.
Then set it out to dry for a day or two.
Now stamp your spoon! I use a metal stamping kit from hobby lobby- but you can get them on amazon too!
Now you can get creative! Once your paper has dried and harden, you can cut it into fun shapes, or do what I did and make a rectangle, and use a piece of string to tie your spoon to it!
Ta-dah! Now gift it with instructions to plant the entire paper, and watch your garden grow!
