Flowers and Herbs Oh My

Hi Everyone
Well it's beginning to feel like Summer here in the States and the gardens have been planted and we're patiently waiting for the fruit of all the hard work.
This year, like each year I go a little overboard with buying all kinds of flowers and herbs that I can't possibly plant in one season.

My project today is something that I like to put together for friends and family and most of all it's a great way to spread my love of gardening to them.

Today we'll create a quick matchbox seed packet for all those leftover seeds that you may have.

Let's get started.
You will need:
1 fantastically cute digi stamp - Boy Bear
1 sheet of pattern paper 11" x 4"
Corner rounder

Step 1
Print out your fantastically cute digi Boy Bear and color with your Copics

Step 2
Score the 11" x 4" pattern paper at 1" and 6 1/4"

Step 3
Take two strips of sticky strip and place on on the inside of the matchbook and one of the 1" flap of the matchbook (make sure this is close to the crease).

Step 4
Attach your seed packet to the inside of the matchbook. Then attach the 1" strip to the seed packet. NOTE: You will want to make sure that the sticky strip on the 1" piece is at the bottom so you have room to close the matchbook.

Step 5
Adhere your digi stamp to a piece of card stock and decorate.
Step 6
Spread the love! I think your friends will love this little "Just Because" gift.

Have a great week everyone!
