All of our grandmas and moms live far away so I have been making some easy to mail gifts for Mother’s Day.
I have been wanting to do this envelope sachet idea from Martha Stewart for a while. Classy…beautiful. Everything from Martha is though, right?
I harvested and saved some lavender last year from my garden to use for this project. I LOVE the smell of lavender. It is soothing and relaxing which is perfect for any mother.
I decided to take Martha’s project one step further and make my own envelopes out of scrapbook paper so that I could use the scrapbook paper designs to guide my pin holes. I really like how they turned out.
Here is what I did:
See how easy and simple? As you can see with the more intricate purple paper design I did not pin hole every line. I just did random loops and just added more as I went until it looked good and had enough air holes for the scent to come through. So you can make these scrapbook envelopes…
I hear you can use any kind of scented herb. I bet you could even use pulled apart cotton balls dabbed with essential oils as well.
These are perfect for sock drawers, cars, Mom’s purse…so many possibilities.
So…if you need a quick 10 minute, yet thoughtfully handmade, Mother’s Day gift this one is for you!
