Belly Bands for Seed Paper Invitations

We offer a variety of belly bands that wrap around invitations for a finishing touch. Most of them fit around a 5"x7" invitation or a 7"x10" bifold invitation and come with the options to add your own printing.

We secure these at the back of the invitation using a simple application of paste or a 1/2" square photo mounting tab. You should make sure that when you apply the band it can slide off the top or bottom of the invitation so that your guest will not have to struggle. By coordinating your paper and ribbon colors here you can continue the theme you want to establish for your event.

Our handmade papers are formed one at a time with a mould and deckle. They are made with 100% post industrial waste and are 100% tree free, acid free paper. Embedded in this stock is our unique North American Wildflower seed blend. The seeds will need four hours a day of direct sunlight with constant watering until established. The plants can grow to as tall as three feet. The seeds include Snapdragon (annual), Petunia (annual), Beardtongue (perennial), Poppy (annual), Mountain Mint (perennial), Chamomile (perennial). This blend is specifically designed to allow us to print directly onto the handmade seed paper and for safe propagation across North America.
