Butterfly Garden Seed Mix Gifts

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :) Still feeling not right so not my normal self but these were a very simple make :)
Many of you will well know my love of butterflies. I really adore them, and even raise caterpillars (in fact I have some at the moment) :)
So as a gift for my friends I made these little pouches with instructions I created in Craft Artist :)

I bought a couple of boxes of Butterfly seed mix-a collection of plants butterflies love to feed from to plant in their gardens. I split the packet into card bags and sealed.

I then went into the Craft Artist software and designed three different labels for variety.

I printed these onto cardstock and cut them into their individual shapes. I then hand wrote the instructions on the reverse. To keep them nice however long they are needed as the seeds grow I laminated them. This way they can keep the label and discard the rest of the wrapper.

I cut round the laminated bits and left a little border. I made pretty toppers for the sachets with Papermania paper which I double sided taped to the bag, and to each side. Then the instructions were put on but I left them to easily be taken off :)

I would like to enter these into the following challenges:
