 DIY Seedling Pots

I just found this by accident while researching something else. It was far too cool an idea not to post.

This link is for a page that gives written and picture directions on using an origami technique to form seedling pots out of black and white newsprint. Other sets of directions involved staples, glue and other items. But this project uses plain old newsprint that you don’t have to empty out and transplant because it just breaks down in the soil. Too neat!
