Recycled Newspaper Plant Pots

I’ve been thinking about the idea of having instructions included in the pack with the collection of cards on how to make a planter from a sheet of newspaper. This will be good to go with the whole ‘biodegradable’ theme: the seeds can be planted in the pots and then into the ground if this is something that the customer wants to do.

I had a look at a few tutorials online, some were for a round pot using a can/tin to get the shape and others were a square one. I had a go at both but definitely preferred the square version. It seems to hold it’s shape much better but is more complicated to make. This could be a problem if I’m including instructions.


I also had a go with an envelope to see if this could be an option for the card’s recipient. It was more difficult because the paper was much thicker but I won’t rule it out as an option at this stage.
