It’s my turn to create for 3D Thursday, and I have created a way to dress up seed packets for weddings, showers, and more! I was looking for something on Etsy last week, and a bunch of customized seed packet envelopes came up, which I thought was a great idea. So of course, I had to try to create one of my own. What do you think?
I’m really happy with how it came out. I used a bunch of NEW products from the new Annual Catalog, which just went live YESTERDAY! The envelope is made from the new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper; the belly band is made from Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper; the sunflower was made using the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle; and it also features one of our new In Colors for 2020-2022: Bumblebee!
The envelope was designed to be opened and closed without having to be sealed. I did not seal the flap on the envelope intentionally, so that it could be opened and closed without tearing. The belly band holds it closed when it’s on, which can easily be slipped on and off as needed. I included a packet of sunflower seeds to go with the sunflower theme of the project, but we have so many pretty flower stamps and dies in the new catalog, I can imagine making these with other types of flowers and seeds as well!
The measurements of my final project are as follows:
Finished envelope: 3-1/2 x 5-3/8 inches
Belly band: 3-9/16 across x 3-1/2 inches tall (just the front dimensions)
Sunflower: Approximately 3-1/4 inches in diameter
Sentiment piece: 3/4 x 3 inches
