Get crafty and attach a folded origami corner inside the card. It's a fun and creative way to add an element of surprise and delight to your card.

3. Plantable Seed Paper:

Want to make your card eco-friendly and unique? Write your message on plantable seed paper! After the receiver enjoys your heartfelt words, they can plant the paper and watch flowers bloom. We are even considering selling these plantable seed papers on our website. Let us know what you think in the comments!

4. A Drawing:

Turn your card into a mini art gallery by adding a drawing. It could be a simple doodle or an intricate masterpiece – let your creativity soar!

5. Newspaper Article:

Match the theme of your reusable card with a relevant newspaper article. For example, pair a Piripoho or Breasfeeding card with an article about a local organization that supports new moms. It’s a thoughtful way to make your card more
meaningful and personalized.

6. Lettering or Quote:

Add a hand-lettered quote or a meaningful message to your card. It’s a great way to convey your emotions and make the receiver feel truly special.

7. Jewelry:

If you love making jewelry, why not showcase your talent by attaching a pairof earrings or a pendant to your card? It’s a unique and unexpected surprise that will definitely make your card stand out.

8. Leaf Confetti:

Get inspired by nature and use leaf confetti to decorate your card. Collect colorful leaves from your garden or anywhere else, and sprinkle them on your card. After use, the confetti can go straight to the compost, making it an eco-friendly option.

9. Pressed Flowers:

Add a touch of elegance to your card by using pressed flowers. Press flowers between pages of a book for a few weeks, and then carefully arrange them on your card. It’s a beautiful way to add a natural and delicate touch to your card.

Make your card not only visually appealing but also aromatic! Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil on the card, and the receiver will be greeted with a pleasant scent as they read your heartfelt message.
