Today I set up a make-shift paper studio at in my parent's carport.
I made seeded postcards with seeds from Moonlight Micro Farm.
After couching one sheet of green paper, I use a sifter to evenly spread the seeds across the surface.
Then I couch another sheet on top, to sandwich in the seeds, and use these sprout forms to create embossments. I cut the forms out of cheap foam sheets.
Then I use this handy press my dad built for me. When working with seeds, you don't want to use a hydraulic press; too much force will crush the seeds and they will not sprout.
After the paper dries, all I have to do is cut the cards out. Ready to send!
To grow soak in water for an hour, then place on top of soil, outside or in a pot. Within five days, you should have a little crop of sprouts to eat.
These cards are available on my Etsy!
