You're going to make your own paper? And put seeds in it? Wow, that's really interesting to me. What a great idea! I've been a crafter for years but have been out of work for the last couple of months, and my incentive is gone, shame on me. It's a good idea though to start thinking of next Christmas because it comes upon you so suddenly. I really like your idea though and it sounds inexpensive.

Thank you so much for BR! I would love to see you start a new discussion on how you're going to do the paper with the seeds, and a picture would be awesome! I still think it's a super great idea!

Sounds very noble of you to think ahead, especially that far ahead to Easter.

so i do not exactly understand about making paper and putting seeds into the paper so that the paper can be planted or are you talking about you are going to make the little paper seed pouches that the seeds are sold in? if it is the first thing what it really sounds like i would like to learn how to do that because i love crafting and i love gardening i usually do not make special gifts for easter or Christmas or any other holiday i just make whatever i feel like whenever i feel like

How do you make paper? This sounds like a good project. I didn't work on any Christmas projects this year. Was working on some Sesame Street characters that are wall hangings. They are small so they come in a set of 6. Also made some Sesame Street banks and tissue covers for our grandkids and friends. It was a fun project but am now ready to move onto something else. Don't have a clue just yet what I am going to make. One year I made poinsetta coaster sets and case and tons of other coasters. Gave them as gifts when I needed a quick gift.
