Etsy Find: Plantable Card Set

Perhaps taking a note from the Blooming Wrapping Paper I wrote about, the Recycled Ideas Plantable Card Set ($10) is a set of pastel cards embedded with seeds that you can plant to grow your choice of flowers. The cards themselves are simple and blank, so you can personalize them with your own message, and of course, they come with germination instructions. Since they're handmade, they have the wonderful irregularities and texture that only handmade paper has. In the spirit of Good to Grow month, I say you send one off to a friend, and plant one yourself, and you'll soon both be growing your own hollyhocks, snapdragons, or marigolds. Take that, Hallmark!

I am totally in love with those. They'd be great for wedding invitations or beautiful keepable thank you cards.

I love growing plants. My mini roses have sprouted. I can't wait for them to bloom. I wanted to purchase the plantable plant set but there sold out.

My hubby and I made plantable paper from old pay stubs for our wedding invites. Our guests loved them and many asked for an extra set to keep so that they could plant the other. I was surprised how much folks loved this kind of paper.
