A couple of months ago we were contacted by someone from the State Attorney's Office in Brooksville, Florida for an event they were planning where victims of crimes and their families come and pay tribute to those who have passed. They were looking for some memorial favors to offer the families something that would last throughout the year as an extension of the remembrance and thrilled to come across our American Seed Paper Heart Veteran Memorial Cards that grow when planted in soil. The committee planning the event found it was the perfect favor since it matched the theme of the event and the victims and their families would be able to plant the seeded heart and enjoy the beauty of the flowers and find hope in new growth. The cards, which feature the American flag with a plantable seed paper heart attached, were designed to honor veterans but they can be used for a variety of patriotic memorials and services. The text is fully customizable so individuals and organizations can customize the piece to be just right for their event. The memorial seed cards were very well received, and the event was a beautiful way to families to come together to honor and remember those who have passed. Each of the seed paper hearts is embedded with a blend or NON-GMO North American wildflower seeds including Bird’s Eye, Clarkia, Black-Eyed Susan, Sweet Alyssum, Catchfly, and Snapdragon. As with all plantable memorial cards from Botanical PaperWorks, the recipients will be able to plant the piece in soil in memory of their loved one. The flowers will bloom and grow as a tribute to them and become a beautiful, living reminder that is both eco-friendly and symbolic. If you like the idea of growing colorful blooms in memory of your loved one, take a look at these other plantable memorial products that are made to celebrate their life in a unique and eco-friendly way.
