Templates for Crafts

I thought I would share these whimsical seed packet templates I made.  Seed packets make charming homemade gifts for Christmas, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, bridesmaids and birthdays or memorable favors for wedding showers, weddings and baby showers.  So far there is cilantro, rosemary, chives and basil.

Instructions:

1) Download templates. Simply click below to open and download the templates.

.

2) Print templates. Set the page orientation on your printer to portrait and your margins to one inch all around. Load 67 lb paper (plain printer paper works well too). Each page has two templates to reduce waste.

3) Cut along the outside borders.

4) Fold the “wings” (flaps) along the bottom and each side toward the back (i.e. non-printed side). Use a ruler to make a sharp crease in each fold. Fold the packet in half, along the line where the front and back meet. Fold down the top cover.

4) Glue the top edge of the back flap down, and glue the rest of the flaps together. Let the glue dry

5) Fill the packet partially full of seeds. Fold down the top cover.

6) Write Add “to” and “from”, the bride and groom’s name and their wedding date, express your wishes for a wonderful holiday, or other personal messages in the space provided.

I hope you find these seed packets useful and fun to make. For the holidays, I plan to make a stack containing each herb packet and tie the stack together with a rich red ribbon. Soon all of my friends will be cooking with fresh herbs and drying the surplus from their bounty. Hmmm, guess I’ll be posting some matching recipe cards and spice bottle labels soon.
