A packet of seeds gift

  I didn't like the idea of just handing over a packet of seeds for a gift, but a gardening friend felt she would appreciate a packet of seeds. So I jazzed them up by doing this. The pot is a little plastic planter pot, filled it with that stuff you put dried flowers in, got 3 sticks from a tree in the garden. I cut a piece of card the same size as the seed packet and taped a stick between the card and the seed packet. Used the hot glue gun (for the first time) and glued the butterflys to the other sticks and poked them into the base. covered the top of the planter with little glass stones. Used some Christmas paper and put around the planter and added a Stampin Up Christmas Tag. Made the cat from Cindy Loo cartridge. cut some teeny tiny butterflys from Stampin Up punch and stuck two onto the seed packet so they 'sat on a flower'. I think this looks much nicer than 'just a packet of seeds'
