DIY – Seed Packet Matchbooks

Ok, leave it to Martha Stewart Weddings to “wow” me with these. These are TOO cute!! If you are looking forward to having a spring wedding, a seed packet that looks like a traditional matchbook may just be the favor that your guests will be “wowed” by, too. Take a peek at these, and see how easy they are to make. Adorable!!!

Here are the instructions straight from the Martha Stewart Weddings website:

Download editable clip art, and type in your first names and wedding date. There are two pages, one for the covers and one for the planting instructions inside the matchbook.

Print the front of the matchbook covers onto 8 1/2-by-11-inch card stock. Turn the paper over, and print the page of instructions on the back (test the alignment by printing one copy first, before printing the rest).

There are three creases you’ll need to make, and there are three sets of dotted crop marks to make it easier to do so. Use a bone folder and a metal straightedge to draw creases between the dotted crop marks.

Use a craft knife and the straightedge to cut out the matchbook covers, cutting along the edges of the colors.

Fold matchbook along creases.

Scoop seeds into 2-by-3 1/4-inch glassine envelopes, and fold top edge over twice by 1/4 inch.

Tuck seed-filled glassine envelope into the bottom flap, with the folded edge down, and staple once in the middle of the flap.

These would also be adorable for showers, birthday parties or even just a spring planting party. I adore them!! Thank you Martha Stewart Weddings … what a great resource for today’s bride.
