Lovely Lavender Sachet for Really Reasonable Ribbon
Hello, Friends! Sometimes, an idea for a project comes to you in the strangest way, and in most unexpected places. I was doing laundry the other day when a parcel fell out of the cabinet above my washing machine. I picked it up from the floor to discover that it was a package of Lavender Dryer Bags that I’d purchased at Trader Joe’s eons ago. I love the scent of lavender, and it’s supposed to be helpful to insomniacs like me. I had purchased it with the intent of tossing it in with our bed linens, but obviously totally forgot about it. But just in time to make this lovely lavender sachet for Really Reasonable Ribbon!
The process was surprisingly easy. I used a craft pick to poke holes in a lightweight 5×7 envelope, cut open the lavender laundry bag and deposited the lavender buds into the envelope. I sealed the envelope with glue. Next, I lined the back of the envelope with ivory burlap and stitched my designer card stock to the front of the envelope. Instant sachet!
I used one of Polly’s Paper Studios pretty Blooming Bicycles Journal Cards to create a card focal by stamping the white space with a sentiment stamp that I found in my stash. Next I layered on pretty Wild Orchid Crafts Trellis Roses and Cherry Blossoms that I tapped with pink ink. I tucked in some pink bead berry sprays just for fun. A shabby bow was tied with ivory burlap string and 1.5″ ivory crocheted lace.
I stamped another sentiment onto the designer paper, and the word FRIEND onto a piece of torn cardstock. The sachet hangs on 1.5″ pink plaid ribbon topped with pearl pink satin bows, white iridescent metallic string and vintage pearl buttons.
I think this would make a great Mother’s Day gift, don’t you?
Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to check out the great Ribbon Club Assortment this month!

What a clever floral sachet idea Kathy! Love it xx
Really beautiful Kathy. Are you back to working yet? Or still in the unpacking mode?
Clever idea and so pretty! I bet it smells wonderful! Hope all is going well with your new home! Hugs!
Your sachet is so pretty, Kathy! Great sentiments and I love the buttons and bows. I’m glad I can’t smell it though. I like the scent of lavender, but my sinuses don’t. I enjoy it from afar!!!
Lovely creation Kathy. I have a few gals that love Lavender, myself included, great for drawers! thanks for sharing at this ever so busy time! Don’t know how you do it. 🙂
So pretty. I bet it smells nice! I am also happy that I am not the only one to “put things away for later” and then totally forget about them. I am so sorry I made fun of my mom for doing that when I was young. LOL
This is typical Kathy for sure! Hope you are making progress in the unpacking stage of your move!
Gorgeous Kathy, a lovely gift. I’m with you I love lavender too x
Beautiful Kathy, like a breath of Spring air…love it…hope you are settling into your new home!!
Love this idea. Not just a card a gift too. And yours turned out lovely.
This is so…. Kathy!
