Hello friends

Occasionally I rummage!  
I go through all the boxes under my bed, in the stock room at the shop and find 
projects I had completely forgotten about.
This is one of them - a seed wrapper.
These are so easy to make and make lovely little gifts.
Grand Labels Four scored at the width of the seed packet and folded inwards
to create the flaps.
The centre piece is Jewelled Flowers and Flourishes topped with a brad.
'Love' is cut from foil and is the Sentiments die (currently on sale on the website). 
The seed packet is kept in place with some Dodz aka sticky miracles!
This project would also work with other dies, as long as the die cut covers the seed packet
and definitely flowers on the front...and perhaps a butterfly!
Take care friends - enjoy the sunshine today.

Hi Christine, this is so pretty and a lovely idea...I've made seed wraps for a horticulturalist friend's birthday in the past, but none as pretty as this, hugs Carole Z X

A lovely idea Christine, a lovely way to wrap a little present for any gardeners, or for children to get them interested in gardening.

This is very pretty Christine. Makes a small gift extra special.

Ros Hodgkin said...

Hello Christine, what a great idea, as when giving small slim gifts I tend just to slip them into an embossed envelope whereas your idea looks so much nicer, and I I hope to remember.

Hi Christine, This is a brilliant idea, and the labels works really well with the seed packet, loving your embellies, especially the brad which is so 'apt'.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine
This is such a lovely idea - so pretty. It's amazing what you can find during a good rummage! It would work well with the grand labels 11 too and a butterfly would love fab (as always).
I hope you are keeping safe in this very hot weather.
Take care

Hi Christine,
sorry about dipping in and out of your blog - bit of a stressful time these days and not likely to get any better soon.
I love your seed packet "envelope" - it is such a lovely idea. Shall certainly adopt it. Keep rummaging!!!!

Hope all is well with you and yours and you all enjoying life with Bella and the kittens.
Hugs, Rose
