Lavender Sachets with Amy from AHLFM

I always like to make homemade gifts for friends and family over the holidays.  This little sachet DIY project is simple, and easy and I got lots of thank you’s.  This would be perfect to place on a wrapped gift making a special ribbon or stocking stuffer, you could also hang it on a bottle of wine for hostess gift.

I got the burlap, ribbon, and iron on adhesive at Michael’s’ crafts.  I ordered the Lavender Flowers on-line from Starwest Botanicals.

What I used:
