I have had many a bride find my shop, love my plantable papers but then feel stumped how to incorporate them into their wedding or display them. Here's a shout out to some talented people who have had clever displays to get the ideas rolling for you. I have punched holes in flat cards and added a string so that brides could attach tags and cards to trees, around mason jars and to a small favor bags. One bride got some low flower boxes and planted wheat grass in them, then tucked the pieces of paper standing up into wheat grass. She used different colors of plantable paper to indicate the dinner choice for each guest. I have also had brides use my miniature envelopes so they could tuck a small piece of plantable paper inside each, then use them as place cards. For that same couple, I made full-size cards and envelopes that matched the name cards, and the bride and groom used them as thank you notes to bring the theme full circle.
I loved how one couple used smooth river stones to anchor their handmade paper down against crisp white napkins at an outside wedding:
Most recently, Pauleen Vacca — who owns a full service event and marketing firm in Rochester, New York — purchased my seeded paper for one of her clients and came up with this clever way to display them:
I love getting photos from customers who show me how they use my products. If you have been a customer of mine, please send me your pictures and I will give you a shout out here!

Sometimes I discover art before I try to make it. I opened up a flower press today because I felt like fooling around and making some on my Petal People, which are little figures made out of pressed flowers then mounted onto my handmade paper. When I opened it, I saw the prettiest composition of colors, shapes and textures that I had to take a picture! Not sure if it comes across in this photo or not but it was so pleasing I wanted to frame it as is.
