This is a project from last season. I always end up tossing, destroying, leaving out the seed packets so I don't have the information on the back for later or the next season replanting. There are also occasionally packets that are beautiful pieces of art and I want to hold onto them. So using the very packets the seeds came in, I stuffed, prepared, and mounted the packs. The packages were opened along the bottom with scissors or a blade. A small piece of poly-fill sheet was inserted to give it body. A dowel was inserted and the bottom sealed. The whole thing received multiple coats of Modge Podge to seal it.

What a great idea! Do these hold up well outside, or do you use them inside only?
