Wedding Favor Seed Packets

Posted by on


All brides want a memorable wedding and one way to achieve special memories is to make custom elements like these adorable wedding favor seed packets. These DIY wedding favors are budget- and Earth-friendly.
- Cardstock (each piece of 8.5" x 11" stock makes two separate seed packets)
- Thread
- A sewing machine
- Seeds in bulk
- A paper cutter, scissors, or a craft knife
- A stamp (sized to fit your package)
- An ink pad

Step 1

Use a word processor or design program to lay out the planting instructions on the front and the recipe on the back. You can download the template we used at Sara's blog.

Step 2

Print the planting instructions on one side of each card. Feed the cardstock through the printer again to print the recipe on the other side.

Step 3

Use a paper cutter, scissors or craft knife to chop the cardstock in half.

Step 4

Use a stamp to print an image on the bottom half of the card. (Make sure it's upside down, since you will fold the card to create a pouch for the seeds.) Alternatively, you could insert a clip art during the design stage.

Step 5

Sew around the three outside edges to create a pouch.

Step 6

Fill the pouch with seeds.

Step 7

Sew across the top to close the pouch.

Step 8
