If you haven't used any puns yet, I have a great one for you: Let Love Bloom ... attached to a seed bomb. How great of a wedding favor is that? Your guests' flowers will grow simultaneously with your love. I love it!
And you'll love how easy these are to make. You really just put in a few minutes of work, wait 24 hours, and you're ready to package them.
DIY "Let Love Bloom" Seed Bomb Wedding Favors
What You'll Need:
- Wildflower seed packets
- Old newspaper
- Organza bags
- "Let Love Bloom" printable (see below)
What You'll Do:
Tear the newspaper into strips. You can use scissors to do this too, but tearing might be a therapeutic way to get rid of some wedding planning stress.
Soak the newspaper strips in a bowl of water for about 15 minutes.
Pulverize it in a food processor until it becomes mush.
Put the mush in a strainer and squeeze out as much water as possible.
Fill a mold halfway with the mush. You really want to pack it down well. The mold that made these is the Good Cook Sweet Creations Spring Mold. It's silicone and usually used for chocolate bark (or, actually, I used it to make coffee creamer molds before I gave it to my friend Danielle, who used it to make these seed bombs). What's cute about it is it has a pattern that really indents itself into your seed bombs. If you'd rather, you can fill something like a heart-shaped silicone mold or, dare I say, a flower-shaped silicone mold?
Generously sprinkle wildflower seeds on top of the mush.
Finish filling the mold with the mush. Again, pack it in there. Set it out for 24 hours to dry.
Pop your seed bombs out of the mold.
Place them into the organza bag. The number you place inside will be based on the actual size of your bombs. Place a "Let Love Bloom" tag in the bag, pull the ribbon to close it, and you're done.
Now, speaking of those tags: I made them so you don't have to. I'm all about making your life easier. All you have to do is right click the image below to save it to your desktop and then print it when you're ready. It's formatted to fit an 8.5x11 sheet of paper, which is standard printer paper.
Now, if you've been around here for a while, you know that I pretty much cut everything with a paper trimmer. I bought it to do our wedding invitations and it has been the greatest investment. This is one of the very few projects I've made where I used the scissors, though. It's a little hard to maneuver around the triangles with a paper trimmer, so go with scissors.
