Quick Craft

Create floral patterned packets from craft paper ahead of time using WD's mini seed packet template. Also, print a sheet or two of packet labels onto adhesive-backed paper. Arrange these materials on the seed swap table with some markers so guests can repackage and label them with the plant name, who provided the seeds and any special planting instructions.
