Sunflower Seed Packet Tag...




I've made a few seed packet tags lately...using several different flowers...morning glories, cosmos, even watermelon. The tag in the photos is using the last pack of seeds that I bought to make the tags with...Sunflower seeds.
I wanted to use a paper pieced sunflower...but couldn't find the right die for it . So I decided to make a ribbon flower...it turned out okay...but I think that the paper flower would have worked out a little better. (I was just too lazy to cut the flower out by hand) I really liked making these tags...and I keep wanting to go back to the store to get more seed packs...but I'm afraid that people receiving them wouldn't have enough time to plant them for this season. But...don't you think a seed packet tag made with a pack of pumpkin seeds in it and decorated for Halloween would be good?
