My paper really can be grown!
I made some pastel note cards from what amounts to junk mail and used office paper.
I embedded them with seeds that you can plant to grow plants like these:
* hollyhock flowers (green cards)
* columbine flowers (pink cards)
* cosmos flowers (yellow cards)
* lavender (lavender cards)
About a week ago I put some damp paper scraps inside a plastic bag and set it on a window sill. They germinated! The cosmos sprout easily and quickly. I can see the hollyhocks will take some more time before they will sprout, but they look like they're trying.
If you really like these cards, you can buy them. They are for sale right now in my etsy store for fourteen dollars a set.

Oh yeah, and my shop got picked up by a pretty cool website devoted to environmental stuff - Groovy Green.
