Free printable: DIY seed packet wrap tag

I'm not sure what the allure is around a large display of seed packets, but I'm always drawn to it like a moth to a flame.  Maybe it's because there's a whole lot of promise in each little packet of growth, color, fruition and more, so why not gift a packet or two to friends using Good Gravy's free printable DIY seed packet wrap tags?  It's easy.  Let's go!


I based the wrap tag design using a standard 3.25" x 4.50 seed packet found just about everywhere (even craft stores sell 'em!).  You could use any seed mix that strikes your fancy.  I was especially drawn to the cosmos because how can anyone refuse something dubbed as "dwarf cutesy?"  Not me:

After you print and cut out one of the tags, line up the front portion with the center of the packet:

Score and fold where the two colors meet on each side, flip the packet and fold back the ends:

Apply glue or tape to the right side and pull the left flap over on top, securing tightly:

And you're done!
