Greeting cards made in South Africa with recycled paper and seeds, giving the recipient the option to plant the card and grow flowers such as snapdragon and alyssum. All cards are blank inside; each card/envelope comes in a plastic sleeve with an insert showing the name of the artisan who created the card. All cards sold individually. Dimensions: 4.75" x 6.5" (with tan envelope).
How to plant:
1. Prepare some weed free soil in a pot.
2. Moisten the paper as well as the soil.
3. Place the paper a few millimeters under the soil (or just sprinkle some loose soil over the paper)
4. Water and keep moist during germination (but don’t drown the seeds)*
5. Watch your little plants grow from paper!
*To ensure that the paper stays moist during germination, you can prepare the soil and paper in a glass jar and keep the lid on in order to keep the moisture in.
