Dove Funeral Favors - Dove Memorial Favors - Tan Rustic Wedding Favors
Plantable paper is biodegradable and made entirely from post-consumer waste including high quality scrap paper from other Etsy artists, and is embedded with a mixture of over 40 different types of wildflower seeds, including annuals and perennials, and seeds from each planting zone in the United States. A plantable dove makes a great favor or place card for a wedding, baby shower, bridal shower or anywhere you would like love and peace to grow. I made these dove shaped gift tags in beige and about 4 inches long from beak to tail and 2.5 inches wide from belly to wing tip. Purchasing this listing and you will have ten beautiful dove gift tags shipped to your home. I just love these tied to a tree at a wedding reception hall, with each guest's name written on one beautiful bird. They make great wedding favors!
My tags are made using a variety of paper upcycled paper sources, including junk mail and scraps from other paper projects available elsewhere in my shop.
The tags are embedded with a mix of organic wildflower seeds including calendula, cornflower, siberian sunflower, shasta daisy, lance leaf coreopsis, plains coreopsis, cosmos, sulphur cosmos, giant larkspur, Russian Mammoth sunflower, sweet william, purple cornflower, california poppy, blanketflower, annual baby's breath, dwarf sunspot, candytuft, rose mallow, blue flax, scarlet flax, perennial lupine, love-in-a-mist, baby blue eyes, shirley poppy, mexican hat, gloriosa daisy, black-eyed susan, catchfly, white yarrow, wild columbine, siberian wallflower, godetia, farewell-to-spring, Chinese houses, rocket larkspur, foxglove, perennial gaillardia, moutain phlox, baby snapdragon, sweet alyssum, annual lupine, baby blue eyes, evening primrose, red poppy, none-so-pretty, hollyhock, china aster, mountain garland, bird's eyes, globe gilia, virginia stock, four o'clocks, crimson clover and tall marigolds. Most seeds are grown by American Meadows.
One side of the tags is smoothish for writing and the other is beautifully textured due to the seeds and the papermaking process (see photo). You can use whatever type of ink you'd like on these tags and it won't feather or bleed.
Each order comes with the following planting poem that you can use as much or as little as you'd like:
In this paper little seeds lie in wait
To be planted in your garden or, perhaps, near your gate.
Find a nice spot and cover with a quarter inch of dirt
... And a little bit of water sure wouldn't hurt!
Soon you'll spend a beautiful day under the sky
In your new patch of flowers, like cosmos, daisies and catchfly!
