Jakob’s Seeds

A few years ago, my nephew came home from school with a green bean plant he grew from seed planted in a styrofoam cup. My in-laws helped him transplant the tiny seedling into the garden and watched it grow. At the end of the season, they saved some of the seeds to plant again.

Now, each year, we enjoy fresh green beans from that tiny plant — well, most of us do. My husband hates them, but the rest of us eat them.

So, as the garden is coming to an end this year, my husband harvested some of my nephews seeds and asked me to make a little seed packet for them. Here’s what I created …

I used Cricut’s Garden Soup cartridge to make the seed packet and green bean. The seed packet has cutout in it, so I covered that with acetate so we could see the beans inside.

Then, I cut out a layered bean in the same size to mount over part of it.

I used Mowed Lawn and Walnut Stain Distress Inks to keep it “boyish”.

Finally, I cut out letters with a Lifestyle Crafts font to add to the packet.

Now, my nephew’s beans have a special place to live until we plant them again next year.
