“Share, plant and enjoy!”  Couldn’t have said it any better!  I had to share this so-sweet idea with you – paper that blooms into wildflowers!  Botanical Paperworks sells favors, thank you cards, stationary papers, wedding invitations, baby announcements, etc – the best part?!  Beautiful flowers, the seeds are inside the paper!  Ok, the best part is that they’re eco-friendly and hand-made, even better for 2009… (more…)
