Instructions

  1. Print the free downloadable envelope pattern. No printer? Open all flaps of a small envelope and trace the shape onto desired paper or card stock.
  2. Cut out envelope.
  3. Fold flaps in; glue one side flap to the other before gluing bottom flap shut.
  4. Fill your packet with seeds. Glue the top flap shut and label.

Note: Open-pollinated varieties of seeds like bachelor’s buttons, purple coneflower and columbine are best for sharing.

Bright idea: “Before packaging, dry seeds in a shallow dish to prevent mold,” Country Woman reader Nancy Owens suggests. “Mix every so often so they are completely dry.”
