Ever wondered how to make a sachet?  If you are looking for a simple craft to give as a gift or to make something for yourself, these pretty and simple no-sew scented drawer sachets will leave your clothes with a light fragrance.

They make a lovely hostess gift, basket filler, or Valentine’s Day gift. Pick out a pretty fabric and scent that you love. If you are looking for scents with aromatherapy benefits there are a wide variety of smells and benefits:

  • Sandalwood­ – Relaxing­ alleviates stress, anxiety & depression

How to Make a Sachet

-2

Supplies:
Thin cotton fabric
cotton batting ribbon
essential oil, I used Lavender
scissors or rotary cutter
Directions:

  1. Cut fabric into an 8”8” square.
  2. Cut a 6” length of ribbon.
  3. Fill center with a piece of cotton batting a little bigger than an egg.-3
  4. Squeeze 5­7 drops of essential oil onto cotton batting.
  5. Draw up the four corners of your fabric, compress batting.-4
  6. Tie ribbon just above cotton batting filling.
  7. Knot the fabric.

In just minutes you can have enough sachets for all your drawers and a few for the closet. These are also very inexpensive to make. ­ I picked up this piece of fabric for $1.00 and a roll of ribbon for $1.50, the essential oil I already had on hand. ­ I was able to make 6 from the small piece of fabric, with plenty of other supplies left over for more projects.

I had some leftover flannel from another project and I made my husband a few, tying them with twine to make it a little less feminine, and scented with sandalwood.

If you need a fun and simple craft for a your child’s Valentines party or to pass out to grandparents and neighbors this candy filled Love Bug Valentines Craft is for you. It is also super inexpensive and makes you look totally green since its made from recycled toilet paper rolls, and scrap paper- use scrapbook, construction, or you can even pick up a roll of cute wrapping paper from the Dollar tree.

You can make them all look alike or make every one unique to match the recipient. This craft is great for boys or girls as you can create in traditional Valentine’s colors or any color scheme your child likes.

Don’t want to use candy?  Fill your love bug with pencil erasers, small balls, stickers, mini nail polish, chap stick, the ideas are endless!  I like looking in the Dollar Spot at Target for filler ideas.

Heart Pendants for that special someone is such a touching way to say I love you. Gem pendants, diamond pendants, or even simulated pendants are a fail proof gift. With varying price ranges that fit any budget, you can get a thoughtful gift that will be treasured for years to come.

Of course if you plan on buying gold, your gift will have a higher price tag.  However, sterling silver is just as nice and will be treasured just the same.
