Hand-Made Wildflower Seed Embedded Paper
Recycle and reuse all that junk mail and paper scraps by using it to make pulp for hand-made paper!
I recently made sheets of hand-made paper with embedded wildflower seeds, then cut the paper into shapes using my Big Shot and various dies. I attached the paper to one side of a piece of card stock with planting instructions created in My Digital Studio software on the other. I put the card in a cello bag and gave them as class and Mother's Day gifts.
Not only is this a different gift idea, but one that will bring color to a summer garden.
I used my paper-making kit. But, full directions and a link on how to make paper using everyday household items can be found on my blog site:
