Instructions:

1. Cut a 6-1/4 x 9-1/4-inch rectangle from brown card stock and fold it in half crosswise. If desired, print a short message or your name on the front before cutting out the card. 2. Use a crafts knife and a ruler to make a slit in the card front long enough to allow the seed packet to fit in the opening. Wrap and tie the seed packet with a length of raffia, then slip it into the card, securing the packet with a small piece of tape. Cut a rectangle from white card stock to line the card and tape in place.
