Five things to Make and Do with Botanical Interests seed packets

Last night we finished planting the rest of the seeds in our community garden...

It was a long day, not with the planting, but just a long day of things that needed to happen. And we all know how that goes...

So just before lights out, I sat at the edge of the bed with my gardening box in hand, holding some empty seed packets from Botanical Interests... wondering what could I use these for?

Really, I think they have some of the best botanical artwork I have ever seen and I don't just want to throw them away or compost them, if I can find a creative use for them. Now mind you this is an {on the fly and in a flash} styled blog post, but here are five things you can make and do with Botanical Interests seed packets...

  • Book Marks: the fronts and little side planting strip would make great book marks. I tried to whip up one or two quickly this morning, after taking Mo to the dog park and picking up our inter-library loans - so it's not the best quality, but you get the idea.

  • Thank You Note Envelopes - with a little creative working at the seams, open your packet up and fashion it as an envelope for your special thank you.
  • Invitations to a Garden Party or Garden Tea - again work your packet open, and adhere a blank piece of paper to the inside. This blank space is where you would write the invitation details... you could use a computer to create a prettier inside with special fonts. 

  • Inserts or Accents to your Project Life or Scrapbooks - these are the perfect size for Project Life sleeves and gardening scrapbooks, or even your own special garden journal. Mini book covers?
  • Seed Box Covers - take all of your left over Botanical Interests seed packets and cut the fronts off, decoupage them onto a board or wooden box of your choice, use this box to store your short term seeds in. 

I think the ideas could be endless! So if you have one that comes to mind, please feel free to share it below... I look forward to the reading and gleaning.

~ Blessings!
