Balsam Sachets


Muslin bags stamped with an evergreen motif and filled with fragrant dried balsam make seasonally appropriate sachets. The tiny tags were made using a craft punch.


  1. Insert a scrap of cardboard into a muslin bag (available at specialty-food shops and online).

  2. Using a rubber stamp with an evergreen motif and a light-green ink pad, stamp design on bag; let dry.

  3. Repeat with a dark-green inkpad to create a shadow effect; let dry.

  4. Write a message on a small gift tag, and string it onto one of the bag's ties.

  5. Fill the bag with dried balsam, then pull the ties tight and knot to close.
