When I posted about my adventures in saving onion seeds I mentioned the desire to purchase some small envelopes to hold the seeds. jimmycrackedcorn promptly responded with a comment scolding me for my lack of cheapness. Which I shamefully have to agree completely and took his advice and decided to make some of my own.
I followed the directions from the ICPS Seed Bank though I did do a little improvising to make the packets a little smaller and I got lazy on my folding so I have provided the cheap/lazy directions below.
Step #1: Start with a sheet of paper and fold down the middle, this will allow two seed packets per sheet of paper:
Step #2: Use scissors to cut out the individual triangles which will be come your seed packets
Step #3: Fold one corner one third of the way across the paper
Step #4: Insert the other corner inside the fold and fold flat
Step #5: Open top and pour in seeds, add a label, and fold over top
I like this design since it is easy enough that even I can do it, it naturally has a funnel to pour in/out seeds, and is fairly compact which is good since my pickle jar seed holder in my refrigerator is getting pretty full.
