I don’t know if anyone is using it, but we want to use homemade seed paper for our invitations. Here’s a link to what I’m talking about:
Okay so the conundrum comes from the fact that since I’m graduating I only have access to our schools print/papermaking lab until August 2011 and our wedding will not be until August 2012. Also, since its not in our budget to buy it handmaking is our only route. So would seed paper last an entire year if I made it this August? Some people say that seed can last two years in their packet, but does it work the same way with this? Any info would be awesome 🙂

I am thinking about doing a similar thing for the party favors 🙂 Our wedding is in October 2012 and I would also like to know if the seeds would last.

I think seeds (at least vegetable seeds, this is based on what my dad told me!) tend to have about half as many sprout every year that you keep them. I suspect that seed paper would be similar?

We have seen our seed papers still produce sprouts four years after the sheets were first made. We store our papers in a cool and dim environment and have mostly wildflower seeds in the paper. Even our basil seed papers sprout several years after being made. Vegetable seeds do tend to need more care than wildflower seeds but I still think, if you include enough seeds in your sheets, you will have no noticable drop in germination after just one year.
I hope this helps. You can find info about our seed papers here http://www.custompaper.com.
