The #plantlady movement that’s taking over Instagram and Pinterest isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. And now that it’s gardening season, it’s time to embrace (and hoard) *all* the greenery. If you don’t have a green thumb or are looking for something a little less demanding, paper plants are a great alternative for your indoor jungalow. Plus, they won’t wilt or dry out. If they start to show any sign of sadness, simply print a new batch, and voila! Instant indoor garden for your plant #shelfie.
To start your garden, print out both cacti sheets and allow to dry. Then print the corresponding patterns on the other side. See the printables above for how to line them up properly.
After you have your double-sided plants, use an X-ACTO knife to cut the cacti. Then make slits in the middle, put ’em together, and revel in your green goddess skills. ;)
You can put your paper plants in tiny pots or create a cool desert scene like the one above. Either way, your cacti game will be fierce.
We want to see where you put your adorable indoor plants! Share the finished result with us on Instagram by tagging us and using the hashtag #iamcreative. And be sure to check out our other awesome Free Printable Friday finds here.
