Line the Box With Plastic

Line the box you just cut with your plastic zip-top bag, making sure the bottom and sides are covered.

Add Succulent

Arrange your succulent on top of the zip-top bag. Be sure to transfer enough soil from the original planter, along with the plant itself.

Trim Plastic Lining

Using your scissors, trim the excess plastic bag around the edge of your succulent, leaving just enough of a plastic liner to keep water from running into the pages of the book when you water it.
