Seed Money by Leafcutter Designs- 11.30.12

seedmoney0.jpg From kickstarter to my mail box! My Seed Money by Leafcutter Designs just showed up today, and they are even cuter than expected. Lovely attention to detail with the packaging and coin faces. Basically, they had custom pressed paper filled with seeds, then letterpressed and cut out as coins! So you can tip with them, share them with friends, pop them in pots and poof! Plants!

As they describe it, “Seed Money looks like the real thing - pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters - but is far more valuable. Use it to solicit surprise and smiles from friends and strangers alike, and then tuck these paper coins in soil to grow colorful flowers and delicious vegetables. It’s tender for tending! Seed Money is hand-illustrated and letterpress printed in Nebraska on thick custom papers embedded with seeds. Available in rolls for sharing and spreading the wealth, these lightweight, whimsical - and practical - coins will slide easily into a purse or pocket.”

As for what grows from them - Pennies: Mix of wildflowers including Black-Eyed Susan, Spurred Snapdragon, Shirley Poppy, White Tarrow, and Sweet Alyssum. Nickels: Herbs including oregano, dill, parsley, basil, chive, thyme, and sage Dimes: Root crops including carrot, parsnip, and turnip. Quarters: Salad greens including bibb, Black Simpson, Salad Bowl Red, radicchio, and endive. And the special Buffalo Nickels: Bee Balm (aka Lemon Mint).

See all the fun details (including some “special” pennies) on the next page!







Look! Special pennies! In the roll, i ended up with 5 indian head pennies, and 3 canadian ones… seedmoney7.jpg

Who said money doesn’t grow on trees, well plants?

Could you imagine dropping a roll of these “pennies” in a puddle accidentally then having the whole roll sprout wildflowers!

Leafcutter Designs is wicked awesome. I’m still mulling over the card game they sent me. I waited months and months and finally stopped expecting anything when the lovely thing arrived in the mail.
