‘Plantable’ Seed Paper
It’s an exclusive trend to invite your guests using plantable seed paper which can be sprout out when thrown into the soil. Invites soon turn into a green tree by putting a little effort into pouring it with water and dirt. Can anything be better than this? As flowers will grow your popularity will enhance with the beauty of nature. There is also the availability of variations in the herb, veggie, and wild seeds embedded with recycled papers.
We can further move one step ahead, to team invites with natural veg oil or soy ink. Instead of using chemical ink, turmeric ink can also be used (symbol of Manglik i.e. pious). Natural ink may take longer to dry but it’s worth the wait.

It’s a unique way to use the wooden boxes as invites and drop lovely messages with handmade papers into it. To make it more different you can use wooden frames with some modern or traditional carving. It will definitely appear rustic and earthy.
