Seed Packet Gift Planter for Michelle Perkett Design Studio Earth Day Blog Hop





Hello and welcome! Thanks for joining us for the Michelle Perkett Design Sudio Challenge Blog's Earth Day Hop (Wow...that's a mouthful). We were asked to create something using recycled items on our project and to also use the color green. I chose to create a gift planter. I was lucky enough to find a planter (which was also green) that I hadn't used yet. I decoupaged the planter with some paper scraps I had. I found some twigs outside to tie the seed packets to and added some Spring sentiments to also hang from the twig branches. I followed a template online to make the seed packets and decorated them with Michelle's Amore Fairy stamp. The leaves on the planter were taken off somne silk flowers I had left over from another project and the flower attached to the leaves and ribbon was made from paper scraps (Whiff of Joy stamps has a great tutorial on making these).

Well...that's it. Thanks for stopping by. The next stop on the blog hop is Tammy's http://tmaynard.blogspot.com
