My mother-in-law is an avid gardener so I crafted these for her. Here is how these were made.
1. Cut out using pattern.
2. Fold side flaps together and then secure with double sided tape.
3. Fold up both of the end flaps. Secure only one with double sided tape.
4. For the closure I punched a hole in the back of the seed packed and a matching hole in the top flap. I then threaded ribbon through the holes. The ribbon is then tied in a bow to secure packet closed.
5. Decorate the front of the seed packet to your liking.
I made six packets and put a scripture on the front of each one. In case you are interested this is the scripture I used.
"For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive"
1 Corinthians 15:22
"He has made everything beautiful in His time."
"The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever."
"The whole earth is full of His glory!"
"Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him."
"The Lord has done great things for us, and we are glad."
I tied the packets together with twine. This will go into a gardening basket. Along with a stepping stone that will have Megan's little foot prints.
If anyone is interested in making these I would be happy to email you the pattern. Just leave a comment with your e-mail address.
Now that I have been bitten by the crafting bug I will be scouring blogs and magazines for cute ideas!
