Plant-Care Gift Cards

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 2008


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. 


  • Gift bag

  • Tissue paper

  • Satin ribbon

  • Scissors

  • Silk flower

  • Hot glue

  • Blank card


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

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

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