Project, seed envelopes

First gather tissue paper, not too light weight, I used Japanese Calligraphy paper, cheap and perfect.

Cut 9x9"  and overlap back a little for center seam, Glue with glue stick.
Make all creases and bend back and forward.
Now turn packet to side and make diamond shape folds, bit tricky!
Pull the smaller flaps to center, overlap and glue.
Always keep reinforcing the folds, especially the horizontal  ones.
Fold resulting packet flat for storage. Bags will stand on a flat base when in use.Decorate, ......stamp with little alpha stamps at top. Add an image, either seed packet or favorite picture of Provence.
To add seeds fold top to back and seal with glue.
