Seed Packet tips: to ensure that seeds remain dry, combine them with powdered milk before filling packets. Include a note about planting location and the recommended season/conditions for planting. These seed favor packets are perfect for a garden wedding or bridal shower. They can be used as favors, as seating place cards, or even as confetti or birdseed holders.

    The seed packet idea is wonderful. In Texas, we love our wildflowers and to give each guest wildflowers that they can cast to the wind, would be a place that I would come to every year to see the progress of the flowers.

    They look amazing. Can you tell me is this A4 sized card stock that you used?

    This may sound ignorant, but I have read many sites that use “double-sided tape.” Do you need to just be extra careful so that the tape doesn’t overlap? I’m envisioning seeds being STUCK to the tape….Hmm….
