Sometimes only a thoughtful, clever little Valentine will do, and these adorable packets of sweet pea flower seeds fit the bill perfectly! They're quick, easy, and they definitely won't break the bank. Plus, long after Valentine's day has passed, your sweetheart will have some of the prettiest & most fragrant flowers around!

Glassine bags from Paper Source
Sweet pea seeds
Floral fabric tape from Etsy
White cardstock
Blush vellum paper from Michael's
Gold pen
Copper sealing wax from Save on Crafts
Flower stamp from Michael's


Step 1: Cut the cardstock and vellum into 1/2" x 2" strips, and cut a 2" strip of floral tape. Cut out a triangle shape on one end of each piece to make them into flags.
Step 2: Write a message to your sweet pea on the vellum.
Step 3: Fill the glassine bags with sweet pea seeds.
Step 4: Gather all the flags together and fan out slightly. Place on the flap of the bag. Heat up the glue gun with wax stick, and squeeze out a quarter size amount of wax onto the fans and the bag. Quickly press the stamp into the hot wax.
