A Last Minute Stocking Stuffer Idea

For a quick, easy, and cheap stocking stuffer gift idea try a homemade seed packet! I learned how to put together these seed packets that use a technique of  paper folding from Nancy Ondra's blog Hayefield House. Go take a look at her post titled Origami for Seed Savers to learn how. The only thing that you need to do to make these seed packets suitable for Christmas presents is to use the leftover bits of wrapping paper. Not only is it easy to do but it's environmentally friendly since the leftover bits of paper won't end up in the trashcan. 

Just make your packet following Nan's instructions then label the outside and put a little gift tag on it.  Now you have a cheap and easy Christmas stocking stuffer idea.  After all what else are you going to do with the two thousand marigold seeds you collected?


  1. Another clever idea Dave, thanks for the link. Who knew that all those seeds we collected & leftover wrapping paper would make such a nice stocking stuffer or maybe hostess gift during the holidays.

  2. What a great idea Dave. Now I know what I'll do with all those bits of paper & seeds.

  3. Great idea! I learned how to make origami ornaments so many years ago, but have forgotten. This is another informative post.
