Envelope Sachets

Making sachets is easy when you embellish envelopes with designs of small holes and add scented ingredients. For personalized sachets, punch out friends' initials on colored envelopes.

  • Graph paper (optional)

  • Cutting mat

  • Piece of felt

  • T-pin (available at crafts stores)

  • Glue stick


  1. Use our heart or butterfly templates, or make your own pattern. Graph paper is good for creating a grid design (such as the one shown at top left). Working on a cutting mat or piece of felt, lay your template over an envelope.

  2. With a T-pin, punch holes through the template and envelope until the dotted design is complete.

  3. Fill the envelope with blends of scented ingredients. We like the following combinations: cedar tips, cedar shavings, and lavender; orange tea and dried roses; and lemon verbena, chamomile and dried lemon peel. (Vary the amount depending on the envelope size; we used 1 tablespoon in the gift-card envelope.)

  4. With a glue stick, seal the envelope.

  5. Poke whimsical designs in your paper envelopes, then add your choice of aromatic blends.
