The Matchcarden: grow-your-own in miniature

A while back I posted on the postcarden – a little packet of happiness comprising a pop-up watercress garden in a postcard shaped box that the chosen recipient unfolds, waters and watches grow.

Now the people at Another Studio have come up with the matchcarden – the same sort of thing but based on a sliding matchbox. Slide the little garden out of the box, pop it up, water, and wait.

The designs revolve around two themes: The City Street, a little street of townhouses, and The Quaint Village, which includes a village church, thatched cottage and the soon-to-become-a-thing-of-the-past local shop.

You can even customise your design by adding a little paper chimney or a pair of lovebirds.

At £3.95 each they’re a bargain.


Say it with a postcarden


I have not seen anything as cool as this postcarden – that’s a postcard-cum-pop-up-garden – in a long time; I can’t think of anything cuter to send a loved one. I also grew one myself and can guarantee that it works. For £7.50, it’s a bargain.
