I love succulents but often forget to water mine. They are very forgiving, though. What a great idea to craft some like these. They look so real. These can also be placed on shelves or other areas where live succulents would not survive well due to lack of lighting.

Succulents from paper really. I love this idea. I have been trying to grow succulents and they always die but I love the look of them so this maybe what I do. You can get real creative with these and you know they will look great on an office desk or teachers desk and you do not have to worry about forgetting to water them.This would be a great project for the kids to do or the whole family. Great project. Thanks.

OMG! These are so adorable. I don't have much of a green thumb, so I love this craft idea.

Eeek! Too cute! I have succulents on my desk at home and these paper versions look like replicas.

I can't believe these are made of paper!
