Step 1: Cut a pot shape from folded colored paper. (You can use an orange or terra-cotta color for authenticity).
Step 2: Cut a strip of paper off and use the double-sided tape to affix it to the top of the card in front and back to simulate a pot rim.
Step 3: Place a packet of seeds inside the fold and secure with double-sided tape.
Step 4: Decorate the outside of the pot and add a message to the inside. This is where you can let your creativity run wild. Embellish it as you like and write in a personal message. I found it easiest to stamp a flower and color it in with gel markers.
Step 5: Give it to a budding gardener in your life.
