The next time a loved one’s birthday or anniversary rolls around, you can stop off to buy a card, but skip the flower shop. Oakthrift Corporation has got you covered.

The company, best known as an umbrella manufacturer, is expanding its product repertoire with the creation of Plant-It, a seeded paper card that grows into flowers when planted.

Made from 100% recycled paper, soy-based inks and organic pigments, the paper will be launched at the National Inventive Show in Birmingham this month. According to a recent report by MarketWatch.com,the process used to fabricate the Plant-It Paper involves imbuing it with wild flower seeds.

“When planted, each handmade seed paper sheet acts like mulch to retain moisture for the seeds. So when someone has finished with the card, they simply plant it indoors or outside following the simple instructions included, and they will be amazed at how it will grow into beautiful flowers,” the report explained. The paper can be cut or molded into any shape or size.
