Hi everyone, Happy Monday! Its Katie here with a cute little project idea that I wanted to share with you all. I am super excited to get into my garden this year and start my veggie patch, but the ground is still a little frozen here in Alberta, Canada. So I thought I would start by making a few gifts for my gardening friends.
Step 1: Start by cutting out your bunny and carrots from Joset’s Bunny die #1929 using your choice of coordinating cardstock. I inked the edges with grey ink and added some pink to the bunnies cheeks and assembled the bunny and carrots as per the photo above.
Cut your hat and brim from Joset’s Farmer set #1859 using a yellow and red cardstock, I inked the edges with brown ink. Cut one or two black crows from Joset’s Scarecrow die #1907 and one grey crate from Farm Accessories die #1858, and ink the edges with dark brown.
Out of kraft cardstock cut out a Seed Packet from -Sidekick Essentials #16, I inked the edges with brown ink and added a piece of acetate in the window of the seed packet. Then with black ink, I stamped the Seeds label from In my garden stamp set #CS212 onto the top part of the seed packet. Last step, fold up the edges and glue your pocket together and set aside.
Next, I Took apart some sisal rope and added it to the brim of the bunnies hat. (I wanted to make the hat look like it was coming a part) I added the tiny crow to the center.
Next lay your images out as per the picture above or change it up, and adhere your items to the seed packet.
*Optional- I like to speckle with white and brown paint.
My favorite and final step to this project, sign and date the back of your envelope and add your seeds!
The best part of this project is you can create a whole bunch of different seed packets, wildflowers, sunflowers and corn. Just cut out your images and add it to your bunnies crate.
I think cutting out pumpkins from Joset’s Hay Ride #1909 and add them to your crate would be a perfect way to give some of your favorite pumpkin seeds.
I hope you enjoyed my blog post for today, have a wonderful day!!
