Here's one simple idea of a sweet and inexpensive gift idea. Have a friend across the miles that enjoys gardening? Sending some flower or veggie seeds (preferably seeds propagated from your own garden) makes for a very sweet, little "thinking-of-you", but want to make it just a little more special? Make your own seed packets, using photos of the mature flower or veggies right on the front of the packet for your recipient!
Here are some seed packets that I designed for a friend some time ago using photos of the flowers as the focal point of the packet:
...and this is what they looked like tucked into a cellophane bag and tied with a ribbon!
Ready for gift giving!
Very simple. Very cute.
And your friend will think you're a genius :)
