pop-up garden postcard : postgarden

My postcard overfloweth. Something to write home about. You’ve got garden. A tree grows in… I want to indulge every dorky phrase possible.

This product, Postgarden, was created by A Studio for Design in London. It is a postcard, that folds out as a cardboard pop-up design of either an allotment (below), a botanical garden, or a cityscape. It comes with seeds and a little inner tray. You add water and within a week, your diorama comes to life.

Bummer is that they are only shipping within the European Union at this time, but for those of you there, you can order Postgarden online for £7.50.

    Hello Bryn

    What a great collection of pop ups. I just did a mini pop up project today, and given your paper interest, and name, had to say hello and thank you for your insights into the world of paper!

    Not to mention your name…!

    Best regards,

    Bryndie
