Floral Pillow Boxes And Seed Packets Tutorial

Hello friends! I hope you are all keeping well. Today I'm sharing a floral trio of DIY seed packets which I made using some gorgeous stamps and sparkles courtesy of the lovely Stampendous. I know I'm bias but I must say - I feel really blessed whenever my DT packages arrive because I absolutely love their products.

When I saw these flower stamps I instantly thought of making little gift packages which would be perfect for any keen gardener and sure to bring a smile - they certainly did for me! And with the summertime sunshine just outside my window, there's nothing else I love more about this time of year than the abundance of flowers! :)
DIY Seed Packet Tutorial - a perfect gift for a keen gardener. Ręcznie wykonane torebki na nasiona - pomysł na prezent dla zapalonego działkowicza lub ogrodnika.

And once I started playing I thought I would share a mini tutorial with you as well :). So here it goes. 


Stampendous: cling Cosmos Spray, cling Peony Spray, cling Pansy Spray, cling Seed Background, Aged Rose Embossing Enamel, Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel
MEM01 Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink by Tsukineko®
Plus: Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®: 3D Thin Foam Squares - White, Crafty Power Tape
Other: Inktense pencils, seam binding ribbon dyed with Distress Inks, Faber-Castell PITT Magenta pen, pillow box template, corner punch

1. Using the digital template print three packets onto kraft cardstock. Do not assemble yet.
2. Stamp the your chosen flower image in black inside the template markings as shown.
3. Colour the blooms in with the Antique White pencil and distribute the colour with a water brush. Allow to dry.
4. Start adding colour to the blooms as shown.

5. Next, build layers of colour on the leaves.

6. Add some shading to the background.

7. Sprinkle the template areas with embossing enamels and heat from underneath.
8. Cut the template out and score along the dotted lines. Form the pillow box and secure with Crafty Power Tape.
9. Finish the edges with a gold pen.

10. Wrap a hand dyed seam binding ribbon around the packet.
11. Ink up the required part of the Seed Background stamp with a PITT pen and stamp onto your leftover card. Trim around the stamped label.
12. Round the corners with a corner punch. Adhere to the pillow box over 3D Thin Foam Squares.

Here is the finished seed packet :).
