I am so cheap- seed envelopes
I at this moment decided that I had my seed envelopes. All I needed to do was get to chopping and with a tiny bit of tape I could have several envelopes. I could also get my addresses, phone numbers, thoughts, comments and lists all put in the proper locations and my desk would get cleaner too. Instead of kill two birds with one stone I was going to kill me four.
Unfortunately, my excitement of making my own seed envelopes over took my common sense and I just started chopping away, turning things inside out and taping. Satisfied with my new, upcycled seed packets I then placed all the seeds for the various packages I was preparing in the envelopes, sealed them all up, labeled them and put them in their various envelopes. What I failed to do was write anything down that was written on any of the envelopes so if any of you get my daughters phone number or one of my to do lists on the inside of your seed packet, please email me the information.
Kidding, really. That was all a lie, but I did make my own seed packets from junk mail envelopes this morning. One envelope with a small see through window will make 7 small seed packets. I chopped them to the size I wanted then just used some cheap scotch style tape for the seams. They sure ain't pretty but they worked great. Heck I bet if you had a glue stick you could make them even cheaper than by using the tape and if you had a child around they would love to decorate them for you.
