12 Gifts for Gardeners ... Day #9

Whenever I have guests come to my home and walk through my garden, I've always thought about how fun it would be to have a cute way to share seeds from the garden with them. When I came across Sunnyside Print & Party Shop I was so excited to see that she makes custom seed packets. These would be amazing wedding, baby shower or party favors as well as a great gift for a gardener or a new home owner. The process of customizing and printing them was so simple and I can't stop thinking about how many of my friends and family I'd love to make these for.


On Amber's Etsy shop, she has several templates to choose from and when you check out, you give her notes on how you want them to be customized and within 24 hours, you have a proof to review. I also reached out to her and explained what I was looking for and she sent me back some ideas and we collaborated on making these darling seed packets. What do you think? Cute, huh! 

Once approved, the PDF comes with great instructions on exactly what type of paper to print on, how to cut, fold and assemble them. The process could not have been any easier. 

Step 1:  This is the PDF I was sent. I printed it on glossy paper as she suggested.

 
Step 2: Cut out the shape of the seed packet. (I enlisted the help of my teenage daughter since cutting these with my broken wrist would probably not have turned out too pretty!) 


Step 3: Fold and stick a little bit of glue on the flaps to seal - soooo easy! 


Looking forward to collecting seeds in my garden next year and sharing with my friends. Be sure to follow Sunnyside Print & Party on Instagram too and tag her and Fishtail Cottage in pictures of your customized seed packets. 

Sunnyside Print & Party is also offering two special coupons for Fishtail Cottage readers. Use the code SUNNYDAY for 10% off any order or use the code SEED2 for $5.00 off any order of 2 or more seed packets in their Etsy shop.

Xoxo, Tracie
