|Vegetable seed book parts|
Seed packets from different vendors vary in size, as do the actually seeds. So before making any books I made a test accordion out of card stock. This helped me determine the final size to cut the paper to hold the heirloom vegetable or flower seeds packets I was using.
A foot of garden jute was attached to the inside of the back cover. After the book is assembled the jute is used to tie the books closed.

For the flower seed books I used paper with a flower design that can be colored. The black and white covers were a perfect complement to the ink illustrations I added to the back of the flower seed books.
These little books make great gifts for friends that like to garden!
