Made from Recycled Seed Catalogs or Gardening Magazines
While researching ideas for an article about recycling seed catalogs, I came upon a garden forum where they talked about making seed envelopes from the pages of seed and plant catalogs. I thought this was a great idea and decided it deserved a page on this site as well.
For the tutorial, I chose to use white paper so that you can see the folds easier, but aren't they pretty when made from colorful sheets of paper or catalog pages?

Cut a square piece of paper that is 3-1/2" x 3-1/2". I like to use a paper cuter because there are measurements right on it to make it easier and exact.
Fold the paper into a triangle.
Fold down the middle point about 3/4 of the way towards the fold.
Take the remaining two points that are opposite each other and fold them inward to form an envelope shape.
Insert seeds between the flaps and fold over. Use a piece of tape or small sticker to secure the flaps.
