Garden Variety Revisited...

Well, we made it through our extra long February *grin* and it's now March!   Spring is on its way!  Hooray!  

The first of the month means it's time for another Papertrey Ink Sr. Team challenge.  This month Nichole challenged us to revisit the Garden Variety stamp set and coordinating products.  She also challenged us to base our project today on an image from Pinterest or a product from a magazine, etc.  I stumbled across these adorable Jelly Belly seed packets and instantly knew I wanted to try to create something similar using Papertrey stamps and dies!

Jelly bean seeds

Here's what I came up with.  I combined the Garden Variety stamp set with a few of the Fruit Fusion sets to create my own Jelly Bean Seed Packets.  I think they would make adorable Easter treats or favors for a spring or summer get together.  All supplies are linked at the bottom of this post.


I used one of the angled labels from Label Basics to frame my sentiment, which is from the Garden Variety set.  A little baker's twine bow, and that's all...cute and simple!


Here are a few step-by-step shots of how I diecut and assembled the seed packets.  (Sorry for my wonky photos today...obviously I had my camera settings all wrong.)

I started by diecutting the Seed Packet from patterned papers.


I then used the largest Angled Label die to cut a window from the front of the packet.  


I then cut a piece of clear cardstock large enough to cover the window.  I put Scor-tape on all of the edges and adhered it to the backside of the window opening.


Then I diecut the Seed Packet frame, stamped it with the frame image from Garden Variety and adhered it to the front side of the Seed Packet.  


After that it was just a matter of assembling the Seed Packet, embellishing it, and filling it up with yummy jelly beans!


Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to hop around to the other Sr Team members to see what they've created using the Garden Variety stamp set!
