Seed Packet.

Maddisons nursery teacher is leaving, tomorrow is her last day, basically she has been forced to leave as they threatened to shut our playgroup, we petitioned and it stayed open but the staff had to take voluntary redundancy or voluntary 50% pay cut!! (I am sickened by this!) Anyway Jill has worked with pre school children for the last 26 years and they have asked Maddison to give Jill a big boquet of flowers which we have all collected for! 

I wanted to make a card and a little something from Maddison, the card is killing me as I am struggling for inspiration, but I stole Rainmacs idea for a seed packet. I didn't use her instructions, I just made it all up as I went along. 

Here is the finished packet!
