Make Plantable Paper and Collages

To make plantable paper, stir a spoonful of seeds from your favorite garden flowers, wildflowers or herbs into plain or colored pulp before pouring it into the mold. When you want to sprout the seeds, lay the paper on moist potting soil, enclose the pot in a clear plastic bag, and set it in a spot that's warm and bright but out of direct sun (image 1).

To make a collage, place leaves, flowers, stems or seed heads face-down on the screening of your sheet mold (image 2), then carefully spoon prepared pulp around and over them (image 3).
