Spring Seeds

I love the Garden Fairies from Sparkle N Sprinkle, if you haven't noticed by now:) As soon as I saw all these cute garden images I thought of making some kind of gift for some seed packets. I made this cute gift package from cardstock and ribbon. I used a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of cardstock and scored it to fit around the seed packet. To make the slider, punch a whole in the top and cut a piece of ribbon that fits around the seed packet; feed the ribbon through both the front and back pieces of the cardstock; place the seeds on top of the ribbon and push the ribbon and seed down to the inside of the card and tie on top. The seeds will slide inside the card and pull up with the ribbon.
Watch for this technique to come up on a Video Kit Club soon:)

This chest is one that my brother-in-law made special just for me...see it even has my name on it! It is so beautiful and he made it all by hand. I have all my scrapbook memories stored inside it.

Happy Stamping,

Adorable card - and how clever to make that little seed packet holder. I'm thinking that would be an adorable Easter dinner favor for each guest....just need to find time to make em!

I just love your idea of using packets of seed as gifts in these slider cards Jil. Using the fairy image from SNS was just perfect for this super project.
