- Gift wrap, scrapbook paper and pieces of wallpaper are all great paper options for this project. Choose a smallish pattern that will show well over the limited surface area of the seed packet.
- We found lovely pink address labels at a specialty paper store, but plain white from an office supply store will work, too. If you’d like to include more detailed sowing instructions or a garden-inspired quote, use larger labels.
- Packaging idea: For a gift, pair your DIY seed packets with seedling pots, or with a bouquet of fresh flowers of the same variety cut from your garden.
