How to Make A Small Flower Pot Gift Bag Idea

Cellophane gift bags with a small pot, soil and a packet of seeds, herbs or flowers, is the perfect gift to give as a single gift for a Thank you gift basket or part of a Birthday gift basket. If you are making a gift basket, make a few more, with different packets of seeds and tie a gift tag with instructions on how to grow the seeds. This is how you make it:

First you buy the flower pot and saucer. These are cheap to buy from garden centers or big stores in the garden section.

This pot measures 2 3/4 inches (that's measuring across the top of the pot). From this you make the cellophane gift bag.

The gift bag measures 12 inches by 10 1/2 inches (30.5cm by 26.7cm). When made, it measures 6 inches by 10 1/2 inches (15.2cm by 26.7cm) Follow the instruction below on how to make the gift bag.

  1. Cut a piece of cellophane measuring 10 inches square (25.4cm square). Place it into the pot, push it down and fill with soil, so it's level with the top of the pot. Twist the cellophane and tie with ribbon.

  2. Place the saucer and pot (with the small bag of soil) into the gift bag. Put a packet of seeds in between the pot and the cellophane, and tie with ribbon.

  3. At the bottom of the cellophane gift bag you will have cellophane sticking out at both sides.  Just get some scotch tape, fold vertically and tape to the underneath of the gift bag.
