Creating & Mailing Flower Seed Packets

It’s one of the best gifts from the heart: seeds from your garden. But if you’re sending them through the mail, you’ve got to take extra care so the seeds aren’t crushed by postal equipment. You can use bubble wrap but I prefer to use non-plastic materials that can be re-purposed or recycled.

Popsicle sticks make it easy and are available at any craft store. Or of course, you can stop at Costco and buy a big box of popsicles to eat over the summer to create your own supply. Fudgsicles are my favorite!

In the following instructions, I’m only using one layer of popsicle sticks since I’m sending relatively small seeds (poppies). But if your seeds are larger, you can stack an extra layer of sticks.

Make Your Own Flower Seed Packets

It’s easy to make and personalize your own packets. I used glassine waxed paper bags and inserted a photo and instructions (using my home printer). Then I folded in the top flap and sealed with multi-purpose glue.
