Seed Swap Tags




Over the last couple of years I've participated in seed swaps. They are a great way to try new plants, flowers or veggies without spending a lot of money. I sometimes would make small paper envelopes or use a baggie and write on it with the name of the seed, etc. Now that I have a Cricut, I can make a kinds of cool things to use for swaps or for giving a plant as a gift, etc.

Supplies:

Cricut Expression machine
Cricut Walk in My Garden Cartridge
1 12 x 12 navy cardstock
Cricut sticky mat

The great thing about the Cricut Expression is that I can cut something from itsy bitsy teenie tiny to very large. So I made some tags 3 inches while others 2 3/4 and 1 3/4 inches. I hit the tag button and used the size dial to set my size, hit the watercan picture and then the quantity button and then CUT. The picture of the screen isn't the greatest but you get the idea. Finally--the finished product of the tags in their various sizes. So if you ever gets seeds from me and you love the tags this is my secret.
