MATERIALS

  • Sealing wax
  • Lighter
  • Seal
  • Packets of seeds
  • Exacto knife
  • Wood planting stakes
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Circle die cut

DIRECTIONS

  1. Carefully open the packet of seeds. Try not to tear the packet--you will be using the pictures on it for the project.

  2. Pour the seeds into the envelope.

  3. With scissors, cut out the name of the seeds from the packet into a thin strip.

  4. Place the name onto the top of a wood planting stake. Attach it by burning the sealing wax onto the edge of the strip and the wooden stake. Stamp the wax with the sealing stamp before it has cooled.

  5. Die cut (or hand cut) the picture of the flowers on the front of the seed packet. You will be gluing this to the envelope.

  6. Cut two slits in the top of the envelope using an exacto knife. Weave the wooden planter through the slits.

  7. Glue the cut out of the pictures of the flowers to the back side of the envelope.
