DIY Thursday – DIY Seed Packet Favours

My friends Lizzie & Joe had seed packets for their favours at their wedding last year and I just thought it was a great idea. It’s affordable to do and something your guests can take away with them. Plus it’s something you can get really creative with and it can match your wedding theme and colours if you choose the right sort of paper.

Paperchase have gorgeous recycled rose petal cards (£4.85) that could be used and I think would be a great choice for flower seed wedding favours!

Here are some of my favourites I’ve found on the web to give you some inspiration…

I’ve looked at loads of tutorials on the net and the best one I can find is on Ruffled Blog. Essentially you print out the template onto card/paper of your choice, cut it out and stick it together with glue or double-sided sticky tape. Then fill with your favourite seeds! So easy. Also it’s suggested to ensure that seeds remain dry, mix them with powdered milk before filling the packets (not heard that one before but good tip me thinks).

Voila. Isn’t it a fab idea!

Tomorrow on the blog we have something extra special so I’m really excited about that. It’s another shoot I organised and this time it’s 30s and 50s style wedding dresses. Eeek – can’t wait!

Ooh and don’t forget I’ll be reporting back on last night’s Love My dress soiree this weekend (it was amazing – more of that later though).

Have a great day everyone.
