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.

1. Glue gun and at least 2-3 glue sticks
2. 3 yards Crafty Cuts 4″ Burlap trim (Michael’s Crafts) makes 13 sachet

Using your iron, press burlap pieces flat.
Place iron on adhesive pieces along inside edge of burlap along frayed edge and then fold burlap over on to itself covering adhesive, making 4″ square. You will still have opening on top.
Using iron press without moving iron and steam to adhere adhesive. Continuing on with rest of burlap and adhesive.
