Plant-Care Gift Cards

Created By: Yunhee Kim, Johnny Miller

Introduction

The next time you give the gift of an amaryllis or paperwhite bulb, top the package with a silk version of the flower: You'll give the recipient a cheery glimpse of what's to come. 

Materials

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Wrap bulb in tissue paper, and place inside a gift bag. 

  2. Step 2

    Fold down top edge of bag to close. Wrap bag lengthwise with satin ribbon, and knot loosely at the top. 

  3. Step 3

    Trim the stem of a silk flower to 3/4 inch, and then slide it through the knot. Use a hot-glue gun to affix the stem, and the ribbon covering it, to the back of the bag.

  4. Step 4

    Write care instructions on a blank card (or download and print card), and slip behind ribbon.
