Seed Packets - Cricut Organization Project

One of my goals for this year is to make better use of my Cricut.  The weekly challenges at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog are the perfect encouragement.  This week's challenge is "Get Organized".  I pondered for most of the week what I could possibly make.  The other ladies had some great ideas, but they were not quite right for me.

Finally the perfect project hit me - seed packets.  I am sure many people would think I am crazy for thinking about saving seeds in January.  I have actually already started planting my spring garden.  I knew I had saved some seeds from last year's garden, but they were lost.  Having cute packets to keep them in would be wonderful.

I made some envelopes in several sizes using the New Arrival cartridge.  I added a leaf decoration, which came from the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge, to the corner of each.  I did not want to add too much decoration so I have plenty of room to write about the seeds in the packet.

Now I will be able to neatly organize and store all of my seeds this year.  I never would have thought of this without the FCCB challenge!
