Not sure what to add in a card? What about....

Seed Tiles...


I had a lovely conversation with a lady down in Canberra just now. She is a volunteer at a place called Paperworks Inc Canberra I had ordered some seed tiles for myself when I got to thinking, what a wonderful gift for someone. They would make perfect Teacher gifts, much better than chocolate (oops what am I saying, nothing is better than chocolate haha)

Well I decided to give them a ring and see if I could double my order and get it all put on the same postage. What a great conversation this turned out to be, she (Kathy) is a volunteer for this organisation, she was saying most of them are volunteers so that the full time jobs can be given to people with disabilities. She made me feel warm all over, what a lovely person.

Anyway I think I now have  decided on Christmas presents. I can see these seed tiles inside a cute box made with the Envelope Punch Board and a card using the Stamp Set called "From the Garden of"

Oh, oh hang on a minute!! I've just had another thought, great for birthdays too and I could use the Stamp Set that has that Happy Bloomin Birthday sentiment.

Ooohh I am very excited. Who would have thought I could be excited about something more that Stamps, Ink and Paper? If you want to give a present for someone who has everything already, why not think about these. They can even be grown in containers so would be fine for anyone living in a unit. Now off you go and buy some of these seed tiles and if you need an Envelope Punch Board to make the boxes, guess who can get one for you. BIG SMILE!!!!

Here is a description from their website...
The seeds are attached with a natural starch to a paper tile made from recycled 100% cotton denim jeans.  The denim paper will decompose in the soil and assist with water retention in the soil near the seeds.

Seed tiles make it easier to handle and plant tiny seeds. It was developed as a planting aid to help those that have lost dexterity in their hands or need to practise their fine motor skills, enjoy gardening.

What is inside:

Bloom Buddies cut flowers: 1 x pack of mixed African Marigolds and 1 x pack of mixed Zinnias

Vegetables: Cool and Hot Bountiful Buddies with a variety of 12 types of vegetables suitable for small spaces or containers

Backyard and Bug Buddies: Australian natives and a Wild cottage garden mixture to attract all the good bugs to your garden.

Full planting instructions inside each pack.
