Review of Handmade Goods - part I

First the wrapping...we used old prints & maps, fake tattoos as gift cards, and drawings from the Sophie and Hobo movie we made. My new thing this year was to glue feathers randomly on everything. I really wish now that we took more pix. Wrapping is one of my favorite things!

For two of the family gardeners I made seed boxes.
I made envelopes out of old art prints and vellum. The vellum envelopes are strong and water resistant. It's always good to have some water resistant envelopes around when you're exchanging seeds.
I made slightly larger dividers out of old prints from art school and labeled them warm weather crops and cool weather crops.

more to come...
