DIY Seed envelopes: Museum-quality

The Smithsonian has the most beautiful online library of vintage seed catalogs, and we’ve been using them to make envelopes of all sizes. All you need is a color printer (doesn’t everyone have one of these now?), scissors, glue stick, a pen and seeds. Here is a slideshow with the basic steps. Don’t forget to label the envelope before you place the seeds inside (it can be a bumpy process when you label after the seeds are inside)
