    Craft expert Kimberly Van Diepen demonstrates how to create a Flower Seed Pocket that you can use as a Thank You gift for any type of baby or bridal shower.

    Kimberly Van Diepen: Hi there! My name is Kimberly Van Diepen. I am a Stampin' up demonstrator. And I am here to show you how to make this beautiful flower seed packet theme decoration for a baby shower. So let's get started. The first thing you want to do is you are going to start off with a piece of Craft Cardstock, about 8.

    5x4 inches, and we are going to score that at 3 inches, all the way down. Once you have your score, go ahead and fold it up and use your bone folder and give it a nice, strong crisp fold. The next thing you want to do is take a corner rounder and we are going to corner round all four edges of this cardstock. Once you have all four edges corner round, now we are going to take a piece of green ribbon and we are going to wrap it around the cardstock like this. You are going to go ahead and tie that into a knot and move that ribbon all the way really towards the left. And then we are going to take our ribbon scissors and make a little V cut on either end and that gives it a nice finished look. Now, next what we are going to do is take our Decorative Label Punch and we are going to just punch this pattern paper that looks like it came from a book. We are going to take our adhesive, put it on the back, and then just adhere that to front of our seed packet. Next thing we are going to do is get our stamping done. The first thing I am going to do is take the word delight and I am going to stamp that right onto my green cardstock. I am going to take the sweet stamp, stamp it onto my Craft Cardstock and I am going to take the baby stamp using chocolate ink and stamp that onto my Craft Cardstock.

    Now, I want to take my scissors and all I want is just a quick line of the delight. So I am going to cut a rectangle right around that delight, using my scissors, and I am going to use the same thing for this sweet. I just want the word sweet; I don't want the whole image. So I am going to cut right around that. And then last is baby, same thing with baby. I just want to cut really close to the image. So we are going to take our adhesive and we are going to start with delight and we are going to just adhere that right onto that pattern paper. And there we have our ribbon and our sentiment. But we have one last step. I want to just take a pink little flower button, attach a Mini Glue Dot to that, and then last, but not least, take our flower packet and insert this. And there you have a flower seed packet theme decoration that you can make for any baby shower.
