Many of you asked just HOW to make—> THIS <—Seeds of Love packet I had done.
I told you it was VERY simple, and now you will all get to see for yourself. These would be AWESOME Wedding or Shower favors! Easy to whip out, and they can be very inexpensive!
Now I seriously don’t have a day that goes by that I don’t use my Scor-Pal! No lie! If you read my blog you will see it is invaluable to me-that and my ATG Gun! LOL! Anyway let’s get to the template tutorial shall we?
Supplies-Scor-Pal, terrific tape, Garden of Life, lemon tart cardstock, black cardstock, acetate, bazzill cardstock (flower), wasabi (leaf), black cardstock, butterfly punch by Martha Stewart, circle nestabilites, summer sunrise polka dot ribbon by PTI, various punches, The Paper Garden book.
Cut cardstock to 4 X 11. Using your Scor-Pal Score at 1 and 6 (see how seed packet will easily fit)
Choose die cut, and cut out, mid, lower portion of FRONT panel. See above photo. It is the panel the seeds are laying on.
(SEE NEXT PHOTO)
Step 3 OPTIONAL
OPTIONAL-then take larger nestability die, and JUST emboss border around cut out panel.
To JUST emboss-in your Cuttlebug-you take A plate, B plate, tan mats, cardstock, nestabilitily and then B plate.
Then it won’t cut.
This is what your panel will look like
Now you can choose which side you want to use on the front of your packet holder. I chose the opposite side to use as my front design.
Then use Scor-tool to bend score marks.
Cut aceate layer 4 X 4, and adhere behind cut out, using terrific tape or redline tape (clear tape). Stamp if desired. I used Garden of Life for this sample. I bent the friends sentiment, to fit in the top half of the circle.
Apply a adhesive strip to the back panel, and place seed packet
Fold closed. Secure with band of ribbon to tie shut. Then decorate as desired.
Since I used a Poppy Seed packet I am using my book The Paper Garden ( that and ALL the punches used in the book will soon be at All That Scraps!) to decorate the front of mine with Paper Poppy’s! If I don’t have an exact punch I try to improvise with what I do have. It’s all about creative liberty!
And that my friends is all there is to it! Just a very simple seed coverlet.
Hope you liked it. If you get to try it, send me a link! I’d love to see your version.
