With all of the paper plants we have made over the years, we figured it was time to make some paper plant pots. Plus it gives us a great excuse to use our cardstock! Once assembled, you can fill these pots with decorative pebbles or floral foam and moss, then stick in your favorite paper plant project.
To get started, check out our supplies list below. Then download our template or SVG file and tutorial below.

I fold you this would be fun
These paper plant pots are a fun and simple craft, made even easier with a cutting machine. Plus they will look really pretty on a mantel, shelf, or desk. To make sure your paper pots hold up well, we recommend using cardstock since it is thicker and sturdier than text weight paper.
If you need some ideas for which paper plants to put in these pots, check out our paper succulents, potted paper herbs, and this zig-zag cactus. Or see our full list of paper plants here. We’d love to see what you do with these paper plant pots, so be sure to post photos in our crafter’s community page, or use the hashtag #MadeWithLia on Instagram.
Skill level: Beginner
Crafting tip: Our template includes three sizes of paper plant pots, but with the SVG file you can make whatever size you want. We recommend using cardstock for structure and a bone folder or curling tool for nice, crisp folds.

- Gather your tools and materials. Then download our pattern listed on the right hand side at the top of this post.
- Cut out and score cardstock pieces according to template using a detail knife or a cutting machine.
- From what will be the inside of the pot, fold down the longer tab at the side, the bottom, and the top. Use a scoring tool to get crisp folds.
