I went with a garden party theme for repurposing my old seed catalogs.  Unfortunately I did not get everything I wanted made but hey that is ok.

Here is the collection of what I did get made:



I made boidegradable starter pots, marble magnets, and a gift bow:

The starter pots:



And the gift bow:


I wanted to do more to tie it all together as a gift set but I ran out of time.

great idea with the marble magnets from the advert photos! 

also i like the pots ...
and i think they would be even a little greater if you could change the fold a little and have them sit inside each other for packaging.  (i learned that from ikea, of all things!)
