Okay gang, I need help. I am T-Minus six weeks until our day and we have a problem. I was going to have plantable printable paper to design some wedding favors onto, found a great person on Etsy.com to do it for me with our own favorite seeds and she has disappeared on us.
Does anyone have any resources that they can recommend in the timeframe we have left?
My Colors are Green/Purple/Silver
We provided seeds to the crafter to make our paper, so we would provide the seeds again if the person makes the custom paper, but if we could get the following, that would be close enough to perfect:
Green Paper/Herb seeds
Lavender paper/Lavender seeds
Natural/Beige/Silver paper/any seeds 🙂
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think this website has the best selection of pre-made favors:
Or you can buy these fairly simple ones from The Knot:
If you’re a DIY bride, you can buy the paper outright:
I am doing this for my favors too but since I am nearing the bottom of my budget, I’m probably going to order the paper from the site above or one like it and try to make them myself. Good luck!

Yeah, we’ve seen them, but compared to the price we were going to get our own seeds for and the quantity of paper 30 sheets, 10 sheets of each color, it was going to be about 1/2 of what we’ll pay there. But we may just have to pay for it and pay it off afterwards…lol 🙂
But my sincere thanks for your reply, this is what I need!

You can find both plain plantable seeded paper (8.5″ x 11″) or have it custom printed with your own design at Sprouts! – go to http://www.sproutem.com. The printing is top quality and it can reproduce photos nicely, better than most.
They have to be printed with an ink jet, not laser, because the heat will kill the seeds. It can be tricky, and some ink jet printers don’t like the paper.
Not all seeded papers have high quality seeds and many won’t sprout, so I recommend getting samples and testing them, if you have time.

I thought this was a pretty cool planatable favors were pretty cool — you get to design your own favors

You can also look at http://www.flowerseedpaper.com for a Seattle producer of seed paper.
http://www.custompaper.com also sells seed paper by the sheet if you want to make your own favors.
You can also find seed paper on Amazon.com and Save-on-crafts.com
