The flowers appear...Song of Solomon 2:12

We didn't do much crafting this week so I'm going to show the Valentines that the kids made last month. They used a lot of foam shapes and they did some cut-outs.

They traced heart-shaped cookie cutters (or some other shape) and cut them out.
Then they taped a flower seed packet ($0.10 at discount department stores) so the pretty flowers showed through.

That's it! The seeds can be planted by the recipient. They did something similar a few years ago for their grandmas for Mother's Day, and it could really be used for any type of greeting card.

Head over to Shereen's for more Sew Crafty Friday projects.

Very cute! That is something I can do with my girls that I teach on Thursday night at church.

I love the idea of the seed packet! You could do this for Easter, too. Very clever!

What a cute idea. I was going to say that they would be great for Easter and Spring, but Mom2fur beat me to it. LOL This would be great for my Girl Scout Troop. Thanks for sharing. This is a keeper idea.
