“Seed” Packet Envelope – Favors, Gifts & Scrapbooks

Little Gift Pouches

These little envelopes where inspired by seed packets.  These would make great little gifts, party favors.  You can also use them to hold journaling tags, locks of hair or other momentoes in your scrapbook pages.  Do not limit your imagination to this Easter pattern..think weddings, birthdays, classroom.  Hey at the end of the post there are just a few suggestions to get the ideas going.

For the Easter example,  White American Crafts cardstock was used, cut down to 6″x6″ square for the envelope.  Crate Paper: Neighborhood Accent Cuts were used for the front of the seed packet.

Trim one journaling card or accent cut out of patterned sheet.  (Crate Paper:  Toy box Accent  Cuts show here)

Adhere journaling card/accent cut to center of 6″x6″ cardstock square.

Use scoring blade on trimmer (or bone folder) to score lines across each side of the journaling card (while it’s attached to the cardstock base). Cut four corners out from 6″x6″ cardstock base.

Use corner chomper (corner rounder) to round corners, as desired. You may need to fold in the two sides to reach the top and bottom two corners like this:

Fold in sides and adhere bottom flap on top to hold envelope closed.


Add alphabet stickers, and other embellishments, then fill, as desired.  (This Easter Egg Seed example used Echo Park, “Walk in the park” alphabet stickers and Crate Paper Neighborhood border sticker.)
