Use Seed Packets for Spring!

'Spring Is Coming' by Brenda Crouch

Hello Everyone, today I'd like to share with you a set of ATCs I made looking forward to good old springtime. I saw some gorgeous retro looking seed packets at the store as we were getting some of our garden seeds, and thought what a great use of the packets....so, I fussy cut them and added different elements to the 'garden' pattern papers I used for the backgrounds. Follow me below to see some steps to creating these fun ATCs.




Supply List:

*Scraperfect Best Glue Ever
*Scraperfect Foil
*Chipboard cut to 2  1/2" X 3 1/2" for ATCs
*Pattern Paper
*Seed Packets
*Wire
*Embroidery Floss
*Ribbon
*Metal Corners
*Cardstock
*Glossy Accents
*Distress Ink
*Pop Dots


Here is one of the packets I started cutting the little girl out of.



It doesn't take much Best Glue Ever, so I used it to attach everything on these cards.



Once she was cut, time to ink...........then attach and continue to embellish






On this one, I used the foil! Easy, easy, easy my friends with super cool results. I used metal corners on the sentiment tag, and then proceeded to use the foil to 'make my corners' on the ATC. 


I used Best Glue Ever to 'draw' my corners on with the glue, and let it turn from milky to clear. Once clear, it was time to add the foil. I used the silver to match the metal ones on the sentiment tag. 



Lay the foil on top of the clear glue areas colored side up, then just rub with your finger and gently pull off...

Voila! Fake Photo Corners 

As you can see: instant silver corners. How handy is that!?!?Anything you can create with the glue, you can use the foil on....so be creative!


On this last one, I again, fussy cut the lady, butterfly and words from the seed packet to use on my ATC. I added embellishments using pop dots to give dimension and added wire to the butterfly for his antennas. I used glossy accents to highlight the flowers in her basket and the ones in the background paper. What a fun easy project this was having the help from Scraperfects Best Ever Glue and Foils!!!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my projects. The Foils and Best Glue Ever are available here, give them a try, and you will also see how easy your projects can be.
