The first thing you will need is your main piece of card stock which should measure 9 1/2" x 4". With the long side against the top of the Scor-Pal, score at 4" and then again at 4 1/4 ".
Flip it the other way and score all the way down the long edge on both sides at 1/4 ".
Fold in, along the score lines you have just made. and then fold where you made the first score lines. You will then take your scissors and snip the corners that are formed when you close the box. Add adhesive to your outer seam, tuck in the little tabs and close your box, pressing to make sure the sides are closed.
Your box should now look like this.
See the top part that is above the box area? You will take your scissors and cut along the score line so that you don't have the fold up part. You will also use the corner rounder on the top corners.
At this point, you should have a box that looks like this.
All that is left to do is decorate the front of your box. I used the Shirley's 2 Girls image Good Garden and then colored it with Copic markers. The DP is from the Basic Grey Origins line and my card stock is some kraft paper from my stash. I am so loving that Origins paper right now! With the measurements that I used, you can add 3 or 4 packs of seeds per packet. If you used bulkier seeds, like sunflowers or something like that you would probably want to only do 2 packs. I am thinking about making some of these and then adding a couple of gardening tools and then packaging them in a flower pot as a "Welcome Spring" gift.
I hope you have found this helpful! If I confused you or if you have any questions, just let me know!

I love the Dove dark chocolate eggs or Reeses peanut butter eggs. Can't decide which is my fav.

I have had several people asking for the directions for my seed packet holder. I don't have a printed template, it is just the measurements. I will post those this weekend and I will try to take pictures as I do, sort of like a mini tutorial.

So here is what your FREE DIGI looks like and below is some eye Candy to get you going.
Isn't that cat just the cutest? I printed him and then colored him with Copic markers. Remember, I have only see Alice in Wonderland (any version) only once but for some reason I think of everything being a little off kilter. I wasn't completely sure of the original colors of the Cheshire Cat so I used my Cheshire Cat hat that I got from Disneyland for my inspiration. So I made my stripes to reflect that! I randomly cut pieces of black card stock and then placed them onto the pink paper so that they would not be straight up and down. To finish the card, I added the pink and white buttons, you know I love polka dots!
Don't forget to go to the S2G Challenge Blog and get your free digi, and then link your project so we can take a look at it. Also you will want to check out the rest of the DT to see what they created.

All the previews that I have seen for the upcoming movie show the Cheshire cat with these wonderful blue stripes, so that is where I drew my color inspiration. After sizing and printing my image, I colored it with Copic markers. For the card, I started with a black piece of paper and then added the blue circles. "Smile" is an epoxy sticker that I added to a smaller black circle. You need to so head on over to Jennifer's blog too, because she will also have a project made with this image.
