Upcycled Junk Mail Seed Bouquets Tutorial

What do you get when you mix a little old house paint and some junk mail? Well gift seed bouquets of course.

Step 1 – Collect your painting supplies and your junk mail.

Step 2 – String up some close line.  Paint one side of your paper and hang to dry.

Step 3 – Repeat for the opposite side.  Allow to dry completely.

Step 4 – Fold lilies.

Step 5 – Add stems using wooden sticks and florist tape.  I also added some green leaves.

Step 6 – Optional painting to add additional color.

Step 7 – Fold small paper seed pouches.  Add seeds.

Step 8 – Use pipe cleaners to tie off the tops of seed pouches.

Step 9 – Insert seed pouches into the center of each flower and arrange in vase.

Step 11 – I also made a little seed booklet for each of the seeds that I included in the bouquet.
