Anybody know where I can get them, considering I don't have the capability to order online? laugh laugh laugh
Maybe Walmart, or a florist, or something?
Right now they're wrapped up in paper towels, which isn't too good... laugh laugh

Thanks thumbup

I make my own out of paper and tape....might be a bit time consuming but did I mention it's cheap? laugh

Most places around here have put their seed stuff away until spring.

i just use plain old copier paper...cut it, fold, tape. i make tabs on the sides and fold them over and tape. then i fold the top down...i make the fold below the front piece so that the seeds can't work their way out...and tape it.

I use my junk mail envelopes to make seed packets -- it's a great way to recycle!

I use my tea bag holders for bags..
Just beware , the seeds must be very dry to put them into plastic bags an seal them.

Rot fast...........

I haven't bought tea that comes in individual little paper packages in a while, but I like barb's suggestion of recycling those tea envelopes for seed packets; I'll have to remember that next time.

I went to Wal-Mart looking for the small brown envelopes but didn't find them so wound up with a package of paper coin wrappers for under a dollar instead.

Sure, they have printing on them but there's still space for writing - so... fine felt-tipped marker to write what's in them, two folds at the ends and two pieces of tape to seal, and almost instant seed packet. I appreciate the pretty ones of course, but at this point in my life time is kind of tight (as in I'm supposed to be working right now) so some things just have to be *done*, not done *artfully*. grinnnn
