A plant I can't kill


Check out my new house plant. It's healthy and thriving because I'm giving it the perfect amount of water and sunlight.


I made it from the cardboard kit, Port-a-Plant, sent over from Chronicle Books. It contains punch-out parts for three different paper succulents. The leaves can be a bit challenging to slip into their slots, so I think a child might have trouble with this. But a grown-up will conquer the cacti. Fun, right?

Below is the photo from the cover of the kit, which is available here.

I really need this. I have a dead plant garden that I keep in back. It consists of pots with dirts and sad dead twigs struggling to stay upright. Thanks for the post!

That is my kind of plant... I've killed three so far... so maybe that's what I need to try. =]

If i were you I wouldn't be so sure. I had cardboard cacti, and i accidentely spilled water all over them and they looked so pathetic after that, I had to throw them away:)
This ne looks great, I really like it, maybe I'll try :)

Such a pretty idea!!

Ann Martin said...

Cute idea! It would be a nice gift to take to a crafty friend who's under the weather. Both the making-of and the finished product would cheer them up.

Great design! You've watered them perfectly. Very cute. Keep up the good work. :)

The other day I was tempted to vary the amount of water I'm giving them, but decided to stick with what's working.
