I made simple DIY Easter cards for about the same price as a store bought greeting card. As soon as I saw these simple, but beautiful seed packets at Terrain in Westport I knew I could do something with them for Easter cards this year. I love the packaging, the font…all of it. Baker Creek also has seed packets that are black with gorgeous fruit and flower seeds, but since I’m sending these to people in all different growing zones I needed something that would work everywhere. Also, as beautiful as their watermelon seeds packets are….I kinda had a feeling that not everyone would really plant them. So I bought the white Parsley Seed packets and cut card board squares painted with chalkboard paint. I taped the seed packets and plant markers with a green checked washi tape to the cardboard. I used a white chalk marker to write a simple greeting on the front and included a personalize note on the back. Each card then went into a square envelope I found at Staples in the clearance section. I sealed them with my tinyprints gift tag stickers. They not only look beautiful, but they worked very well in sealing the envelopes.
Naturally I was thrilled that USPS has Vintage Seed packet Forever Stamps available right now! How perfect is that? The cost of each card including three postage stamps was about $4.45. I already had the chalkboard paint and washi tape and I used cardboard from clean cardboard boxes I had on hand.
