Hello all and welcome to a fun-filled Inspire Me Monday with yours truly, Julie! With Mother's Day close to a month away, I thought I would get started on a fun little surprise for the moms in your life! It's something small but packed with meaning that will literally "grow" on the person you give this little gift to!
Here's a look at what we'll be making today!
LET'S GET ON WITH THE SHOW!
I started my creating a Silhouette cut file of a Seed Packet, sent to my Silhouette and cut out of decorative paper. (You'll find the cut file to download at the end of this post!)
This will serve as my base. From there, I scored along the places that I would use as my fold lines. I scored on the back side of the paper so that when folded, my decorative paper wouldn't break and show the paper's white core.
Here's a peek at all the pieces for my Seed Packet! I used the Countryside Bouquet Digital Stamp by Power Poppy as my focal point and digitally inserted it into my seed packet frame....
If you prefer, you can always print this file, mask and use a clear stamp image on the inside! From here, I used Copic markers and picked up these shades.....
But wait, there's more! There's also a darling downloadable sentiment you can use for your seed packet front as well! We have two different senties for you. One is perfect for the mothers and a second can be given to your grandmothers! Here's a peek at the sentiment for moms. Both downloadable files can be found at the end of this post.
I printed, trimmed the panel, added a little paper piercing, some silver cording and a fun little heart charm. To add it to the front of my seed packet, I actually folded and wrapped it around the entire packet like a belly band. And.... ta da, DONE! Just that simple!
Here's another look!
Want to create a Seeds of Love little gift of your own? Well, it's just as simple as cutting, printing, coloring and then, best of all, giving!
