How to Organize Seeds

By:

Create a cute, garden-themed box in which to organize seeds with tabbed dividers, from C&T Publishing. Gardeners can create sections for fruits, vegetables, herbs, perennials, annuals and more. You can also add magazine clippings to the different sections.

Instructions:

  1. Following the instructions for using the Sakura metallic marker, ink every edge and corner on the outside of the Indie File Box, including the top edges, bottom edges, side edges, back edges, and the seam on the back that connects the box lid with the base. Make these lines at least 1/4″ thick. Where the surface of the lid top meets the surface of the lid back, make your line 1/2″ thick from the edge. Also use the Sakura metallic marker to paint the white ribbon silver. Wait a few minutes for the ink to dry.
     
  2. Cut the following pieces of paper:

    Silver cardstock:
    2 pieces 2 7/8″ × 6 5/8″ for the front and back of the base
    1 piece 3 1/2″ × 2 7/8″ for the right side of the base
    1 piece 1 1/2″ × 6 5/8″ for the back of the lid
    Red cardstock (when you cut, make sure the grooves in the paper are oriented horizontally):
    1 piece 6 5/8″ × 3 1/4″ for the top of the lid
    2 pieces 3 1/2″ × 1 1/2″ for the left and right sides of the lid
    1 piece 6 5/8″ × 1 1/2″ for the front of the lid
    1 piece 3 1/2″ × 2 7/8″ for the left side of the base
    1 piece 5″ × 2 7/8″ for the front left side of the base
    Mini-graph overlay:
    1 piece 5″ × 2 7/8″ for the front of the base
    1 piece 3 1/2″ × 2 7/8″ for the left side of the base
     
  3. Use Zip Dry to glue the cut papers onto the box. Adhere the silver papers to the box, starting with the front. Glue the red papers on the outside of the box base and lid.
     
  4. Put the 3 1/2″ × 2 7/8″ piece of clear overlay on your work surface, screen-printed side up. Using Gem Tac and a toothpick, put tiny dabs of glue in each corner of the overlay. Wait a minute for the glue to become tacky, then adhere the overlay to the red paper on the left side of the box base. When it has dried firmly in place, do the same with the piece of overlay for the front of the box base and let dry.
     
  5. Adhere a tiny rhinestone to each corner of each piece of overlay (8 rhinestones in all). Let dry.
     
  6. Apply rub-ons to the box base and lid with a craft stick. Use any extra rhinestones to accent your rub-ons.

Inside of the Box

  1. Use the metallic marker to ink all the edges and corners on the inside of the box, including the top edges, bottom edges, side edges, back edges, and the entire inner ridge of the base. Make these lines at least 1/2″ thick so you won’t have any white areas under the papers you’ll glue on later.
     
  2. Cut the following pieces of paper:

    Silver cardstock:
    2 pieces 3 3/8″ × 1 1/4″ for inside left and right sides of the lid
    2 pieces 6 1/2″ × 1 1/4″ for inside front and back sides of the lid
    2 pieces 3 3/8″ × 6 1/2″ for inside roof of lid and inside bottom of the box base
    Mini-graph overlay:
    1 piece 3 3/8″ × 6 1/2″ for inside bottom of base
    Vintage plaid paper:
    2 pieces 6 1/2″ × 3 1/4″ for the inside front and back sides of the box base
    2 pieces 3 3/8″ × 3 1/4″ for the inside left and right sides of the box base
     
  3. Use Zip Dry to glue the cut papers to the inside of the lid and bottom of the base. Glue the silver cardstock to the inside of the lid and the bottom of the base. Glue the patterned paper to the inside front, back, and sides of the box base.
     
  4. Using Gem Tac and a toothpick, place a small dab of glue in each corner on the screen-printed side of the clear overlay. Wait a minute for the glue to become tacky, then glue the overlay into place on the inside bottom of the base.

Tabbed Dividers

  1. Use the metallic marker to ink the tabs of all six dividers included with the Indie File Box.
     
  2. Cut 6 pieces of silver cardstock 6″ × 4″.
     
  3. Glue a piece of silver paper to each divider.
     
  4. Using an archival pen, write the following category names on each divider tab or, come up with your own categories. You can also type up your category names, print them out, and glue them on each tab.

    Annuals
    Perennials
    Vegetables

    Herbs
    Rare
