DIY seed packets

I'm always on the look out for cute DIY makes and I found this great seed packet over at Ruffled.

It's not just a cute wedding favour as it also doubles as a place-card but if you don't have a wedding to plan then I thought this would make a lovely favour for a dinner party. Wouldn't your guests just love this?

I'm definitely going to make these as they are so elegant. I'll be sure to show you when I do.

Click here to download the template. I love the brown spotty one best of all!




Step 1: Print out the DIY seed packet template onto cardstock or regular paper.

Step 2: Score along the dotted lines with bone folder.

Step 3: Cut out each seed packet along the solid outlines with exacto knife or paper cutter.

Step 4: Fold along scored flaps.

Step 5: Place double-sided tape on side flaps to secure.

Step 6: Fill with flower seeds, bird seeds, confetti, or whatever else your heart desires!

Step 7: Secure top flap with double-sided tape.

Step 8: Display them together in a basket or individually at individual place settings.

Do let me know if you try this!

Happy Wednesday!

Cute! I even think it could work for a childrens garden party, and they could plant at home and watch grow.
