Mother's Day Seed Packets
I am making these adorable little seed packets for Mother's Day.  I first got the idea from Mary Fish's website, but I started with her idea and made them into my own.  Each packet contains a packet of seeds (flowers, veggies or watermelon).  I plan to give these packets to the ladies who are mom's at my work and also sending them to ladies who were like "moms" to me growing up (including my own wonderful mom!).  Aren't they just so cute?  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think... 

 Sweet One 
What makes this seed packet so special is that the slice of watermelon on the front is scented like watermelon!  After I took the picture I also added "Happy Mother's Day" to the top (as pictured above).

Homegrown
This packet is very close to the one on Mary's website except I wanted a splash of color.  I really love the embossing folder look! 


Beautiful Friend
I made this one specifically for my "aunt".  She really isn't my aunt (although she has been friends with my mom for almost 60 years), but as an adult I still consider her "Aunt" but even moreso, a friend.
