 Plantable Floral Paper - DIY Valentine's Day - PRO-MIX Gardening

If you love horticulture and are looking for an original Valentine’s Day gift with a touch of spring, our floral paper project is just perfect!


  • Pieces of paper (+/- 4 cups)
  • Food processor
  • Scissors
  • Rolling pin
  • Parchment paper
  • Piece of mosquito screen
  • Rectangular cooking plate 
  • Flower seeds (to choice)
  • Dried flowers (to choice)


This recipe can be made with a bread maker or food processor, or by hand. 

  1. Place all pieces of paper in a large bowl.
  2. Add water (enough to submerge the paper) and let soak for 10 minutes. 
  3. Remove the pieces of paper from the bowl (keeping a little water) and grind using the food processor. 
  4. In the meantime, place the mosquito screen over the cooking plate. 
  5. Pour the paper mixture over the mosquito screen, and then place a sheet of parchment paper on top. 
  6. Using the rolling pin, press the mixture lightly to remove as much water as possible. 
  7. Scatter the surface with flower seeds and dried flowers. 
  8. Once more, press the seeds lightly and smooth out delicately. 
  9. Remove the parchment paper and let dry. 
  10. Once the paper has dried, cut out in the shape of a heart.

This floral paper can take any shape you like and can then be planted directly in soil. Isn’t it amazing?!
