Make a Template

Make a seed packet template and a fold guide by tracing the packet outline onto hard card stock. You can search for a template on the web, or you can do it the old-fashioned way by taking apart an empty seed packet. The fold guide is made by taking the original packet, cutting off the side flaps, and using the remaining piece to make a template. You can also use recycled file folders, greeting cards, or shoe boxes instead of purchasing hard card stock for the template and fold guide.
