Plants are great go-to gifts for anyone from the new home owner to the office co-worker. Not only are plants nice to look at, but they also help promote wellness by improving air quality and can have a calming and stress-relieving effect. Instead of giving a plant in its plain old pot, dress it up with some wrapping paper and ribbon! Read on to see how we got both of these succulents party ready!


You will need an x-acto knife, yardstick, some wrapping paper, ribbon, a gift tag and of course a potted plant! I chose to wrap my plant it in our Dab Deluxe Paper, accented with the Hooray Gift Tag and Seaside Grosgrain Ribbon.

Steps 2

Grab your yard stick and measure out the width and height of the pot.

Steps 3

The pot I have is 4.5" x 3" so using this formula, (Width x 2) + Depth = Paper Size, we know that my paper should be about 12 inches on all sides. Give or take a couple inches depending on how high you want the paper to stick over the top.

Steps 4

Place your plant in the center of your freshly cut out square!

Steps 5

Now it's time to fold up the first corner. Feel free to use some double sided tape to hold it in place.

Steps 6

Fold the remaining 3 sides up creasing the corners down so that they lay flat.


Tie a ribbon around the plant to hold the paper in place.


Add a fun tag or tassel to the ribbon for an extra effect!

Now your plant is dressed to impress! The options for wrapping a plant are endless, Nukini is a great tropical option for a festive succulent, or why not try Vintage Garden for a potted flower? What kind of plant would you wrap up?
