"Plant me.“ My new collection of greeting cards!
Each cards has different flowers in handmade decorative pots, and a little package of seeds inside. At the moment there are three different plants: decorative pumpkin, cosmos and nasturtium, but in the future I will make more.
It is a very cute and memorable gift for your friends, loved ones, any nice people you want to thank, or even for a young gardener who is curious about growing their own flowers from seeds.
These cards will keep your kind and warm words for a long time, and will make beautiful memories for both of you. And they are a nice decoration on the shelf too. The little surprise that grows, blooms, and gives fruits will make this gift even better as time goes on.
Another surprise is hiding in the seeds. In order to find out the exact color of the flowers, or the exact shape of the fruits, you have to plant the seeds and wait until your plant will tell you the secret.
These three plants are easy to grow. Even beginners and the youngest gardening friends will be able to successfully grow them, and see the result of their work in the first year.
More pictures and short descriptions of each cards and plants will come soon!

This is a special gift for a very special and wonderful person I've met on an April Fool's Day :) in my lovely hometown Tartu... for a person who became very close to me!
It's the first time I did something like that. I had to think much about how to make everything work like I want and find creative ways for solving problems. But... it was lot of fun! ;)
Work in progress pictures:
What to do if the cardboard that you wanted to use for a cover have a lot of holes and you can't cut them because then the size of the cardboard will be too small?
Answer: You have to change disadvantage into advantage!
Red ribbon helped me a lot with this :)
Warm wishes to everybody!
