Potted Plant Holder

Recycle greeting cards to make a colorful holder for a potted plant.

Approximate Time: 1/2 hour


  • recycled greeting cards
  • scissors that cut a fancy edge, such as pinking shears
  • stapler


  1. For a flower pot that is approx. 4 inches in diameter, cut 14 pieces of pattern A from the fronts of cards and 7 pieces from the backs for "fillers".

  2. Stack them into 7 groups, with patterns showing at the front and the back and a filler in the middle.

  3. Fold each of the 7 groups to the inside down the middle. Staple sides as shown and slip flower pot inside.
