I thought this would be a unique way to make someone feel special. With a paper bag and seeds from the dollar store, you can make one too.

Total Time: Under an hour

Yield: 1


  • paper bag
  • decorative paper
  • glue
  • scissors
  • ribbon
  • ruler
  • seed packet
  • stapler
  • hole punch or awl


  1. I began with a 13 1/2" tall x 8 1/4" wide bag. You may make this with any size bag, even the standard lunch sacks. The principles will be the same, yet I will still provide measurements in case your bag matches mine. Mark and cut a bit above the bottom square. Mine ended up being about 8" tall after cutting.

  3. You will now trim all the excess layers so you have a single flap to turn down.
  4. See?
  5. Now you will cut the front and back of your seed packet apart. The front will decorate your envelope, the back will go inside to hold your seeds.
  6. Fold the back long ways first.

  8. Then fold the sides.
  9. Put seeds in.
  10. Fold entire piece in half. Secure with a single staple. This will keep your seeds together, yet is easily removed and unfolded for access to the planting instructions.
  11. Put in your envelope.
  12. Make even holes in your flap for your twine or ribbon. Use a hole punch. If your kiddos ran off and lost it, an awl works too. :)

  14. Glue flap down.
  15. Arrange your seed packet cover at an angle and glue to the back of your envelope.
  16. Now cut about a 2 1/2" tall x 3 1/2" long piece of solid paper or cardstock and glue under the seed packet.
  17. Write, "The seeds of kindness you plant grows happiness in others hearts. May your good deeds come back to you with a full harvest...."

  19. I think next time I would probably type this on the computer with a cool font and print it out.
  20. Now if you haven't already done so, add your ribbon or twine, double knot your bow so it doesn't fall off in transit.
  21. Now cut a 4 3/4" tall x 7 1/2" wide decorative piece of paper for the front. Glue on.
  22. Cut 2 squares from your paper bag scraps for your addresses. Glue in place.
  23. Add stamps, fill in the blanks and send it off to a dear friend!
  24. This measured 8 1/2" wide, just over 6" tall, therefore the 2 stamps. Have fun! :)
