Make Your Own Seed Tape-Recycle Newspaper
Get ready for spring planting and gift giving. Use all those seeds you collect and save, or buy, and recycle newspaper in a great way. Makes a very good gift for many different occasions, I think, and kids can certainly make it,too. Just cut out strips of newspaper...I used the classified section and cut along the lines of the columns; it was about an inch wide. Keep gluing the strips of newspaper end to end til it's as long as you wish it to be or the package of seeds is gone. Lay more strips on top of the glue/seed strips. Roll it up for storing, and glue the end down. On the one I made, I cut out a circle from the seed envelope and taped it to the back of my rolled up seeds, and tied it all with vintage seam tape. If I'd had ink in my printer, I believe I'd have done it differently :D
This idea was found at a really great site called Givers Log.com. More pictures and how-to's on my blog, and the link.
