Hello SCT friends! As you may know, I love using my scrapbooking supplies for more than creating layouts and cards. Décor pieces, party favors/decorations, gift-wrap – all come from the supplies in my studio.
Last week I needed a hostess gift…fast. I knew that she liked to cook and garden so herb plants seemed logical to me. The problem was that they didn’t look very nice in their natural pots and I didn’t have time to hunt down other containers and replant. My solution? Scrapbooking supplies.
So today I’m going to show you a really EASY way to dress up some herb plants.
Start with your plants and two pieces of 12X12 scrapbooking paper. You’ll also need some twine, glue dots, and a gift tag.
One at a time, fold the point up toward the pot edge while tucking in the excess paper. This will create a fold (or pleats) on either side. Adhere the fold to the container with more glue dots.
Wrap twine around the paper to secure the folds and attach a tag.
Your plants are ready for giving! This would also work to create a seasonal or themed centerpiece. Simply change out the type of plant and/or scrapbooking paper!
Thank you for checking in today. I hope you try this idea and please share your work!
