Rose Plant How-To

Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring 2010

There's nothing more romantic than the rose -- it's a symbol of love and affection that has stood the test of time. Miniature rose bushes make for especially adorable favors that, once planted, will produce blooms for years to come. These Lilliputian pots don't even require a green thumb -- underneath the scalloped band of decorative paper is a completely plantable container.

Our label is designed to fit around the plantable pot from Greenhouse Megastore. We added roses from an online wholesaler with a good price.

Turn the page over and print the planting instructions on the other side (test the alignment by printing a single sheet first).

Use scalloping shears (or a rotary cutter with a scalloping blade, on a cutting mat) to cut along the top edge of the label. Use a sharp pair of plain scissors to cut out the other sides. Long, smooth strokes will give you the most control and the nicest edge.

Wrap the label around a pot, and secure at the tab on the end with double-sided tape. Set a pot inside each label.
