Hey there! I made some sweet seed bombs to beflower my neighbourhood and anywhere I go, actually! Basically it's just smooshed newspapers, water and seeds, pressed into heart shaped thingies and then dried. More elaborate directions with pictures and all can be found in my blog Tongue It's a great way to recycle newspaper, too Cheesy

What a great idea! I love the fact that they're heart-shaped. Adds a little magic to the planting.

This is awesome!!! I hope you don't mind if I steal your idea....I think I just might have to make these as wedding favors for my upcoming wedding (although it is in November?!?- so I'm not sure if they'll fit the season...) But they are super cute. and you could even make them colored by adding a drop or 23 of food coloring to fit any theme!

Brilliant!  Good call planting wildflowers.  They'll grow like weeds!
