Crafty Weekend

I made these cute little seed packets on Friday. They are from the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More Cricut cartridge. The cartridge is new to me and I'm having a blast exploring and creating with it. Last month when I was recovering from my procedure I had done, I thought a little retail therapy might help me along. I went on Ebay, bid on it and won the auction! I was so excited!

They are cut from the Tag Envelope. I use the black out feature, but I really don't think it matters. The size is 10-3/4" A pack of seeds fits in the envelope perfectly.

These little packs can be used for so many things! They can be dressed up as much as you want, or dress them down as much as you want and still be charming. They would be great for favors, thank you's, almost anything. You could use it as envelope for a small card. My original plans for making these are for our Cub Scout Blue & Gold Banquet. I'm in charge of decorations, centerpieces and favors again this year. I'm not sure if I want to search for Scout related items to embellish them or leave them as is. The message on them is family related, all families need to, "Live, Love and Grow"

I'm hoping tomorrow I can post more pics. Have a great night and thanks for stopping by!
