We needed somewhere to store the sunflower seeds we collected a few weeks ago. So, armed with a bit of leftover scrapbook paper, we put these seed packets together over the weekend.
If you fancy having a go yourself, here’s how:
First, find all the materials.
Then find a free seed packet template from the internet. There are loads but we used this one.
And finally, fill with seeds :)
This is a great project to have up your sleeve for a school gardening club on a rainy day. I sometimes use sellotape instead of glue with school groups, worried that if the glue doesn’t have time to dry, the seeds will end up all over the floor :(
If you don’t have labels, simply cut and glue blank pieces of paper to your seed packets and decorate as desired. In fact, if you’re feeling very creative, print out templates on blank paper and decorate the entire seed packet with paint, pens, cut-outs from magazines, collage etc.
Oh, and don’t forget to store your seeds somewhere cool and dry – hot and humid like the kitchen or bathroom isn’t good. Sunflower seeds can be planted in the spring so make yourself a diary note for March or April next year.
