Here are some seed packets I made to send out with swaps and letters and stuff...just as extras you know? or maybe just to give to friends and family...they have white hollyhock seeds in them...I just took a couple pinches of seeds in each packet.

I sewed the vintage wallpaper together to form a packet and I used illustrations of pretty flowers from a  70's national geographic atlas and sewed those on as decoration...also I stamped the word seeds on the front...I'm thinking of glueing a little piece of paper on the backs that has instructions on how to grow them...

...what do you think??

Oh wow, that's really cool. I really like the vintage wallpaper you used. Sooo pretty, now if only I could be paired with you for a swap!

they look nice, with the sewing and all. i made those with plain brown wrapping paper once, and wrote the instructions on them with a glitter pen. maybe you could sew on the instructions?

how sweet! They'd also be a great gift if you'd packed them together with a little bucket, shovel, gardening gloves, etc. ...

I was randomly browsing, and didnt notice it was you posting, and was like 'hey! my old kitched was done in that EXACT SAME 70s paper' hehe. Im such a dork, I was all excited about the coincidence and stuff.
but Im happy that you used it to make something so pretty! (I knew you would, thats why I sent it)
