How to make a seed storage box
Upcycle an old shoebox into this seed storage box, and keep your seeds organised for the whole year!
Making your crafts more eco-friendly doesn’t have to mean splurging on biodegradable products or designing teeny-tiny cards in an effort to save trees. It can simply be reusing what you already have, which is what we’ve done here.
Instead of throwing your old shoebox away, give it a new lease of life in the form of this stylish seed storage box! Divided into three sections, this design makes it super easy to organise your growing collection of seeds.
To make it extra sturdy, line the base and edges with cardboard. Our designer Julie Gibbs, also made it look the part, which is where these gorgeous gardening and butterfly printed papers come in – they’re from the Gardenia 12 x 12″ paper pad from Trimcraft.
So, whether the contents bloom into beautiful flowers, sprout into colourful veggies or they’re content to sit snug in their papercraft home until next season, you can know you’ve earned your eco-crafting credentials. It’s really quite easy being green.
