Free Vintage Seed Packets Scrapbook Paper

This free vintage scrapbook paper design is comprised of authentic vintage seed packet images from approximately 1910. In their day, a packet of these Burt's seeds cost 5 cents. Now you have to pay relatively big bucks to buy an empty Burt's package or even download one of the images online! But you don't have to do that, because you can just download this free scrapbook paper, which features images of 10 antique Burt's seeds packages, which once contained seeds for beets, parsnips, watermelon, two types of carrots, two types of onions and three types of radishes.

I thought this vintage seed packet scrapbook paper would make a great backdrop for summer scrapbooks,because the images remind me so much of the horticulture classes I used to take during the summer when I was high school. (I didn't go to school in 1910 when these seed packets were first printed, mind you, but you get the idea.) We grew huge amounts of vegetables and I'll never forget what it was like to cook with food I had grown myself. It's been a long time, but that fond memory lingers on!
