KimberlyRae is always surprising her loved ones with something special. See what she created today, for her sweet Mother-in-law!
HiHi Crafty Friends!
My Mom-in-law is just the sweetest person ever and her birthday is coming up. She loves roses and rose scent so I made her these sachets she can put just about anywhere to perfume-up a room, closet or traditional dresser drawer.
Why keepsakes? I made some of my Dad-in-law's funeral roses into potpourri and then added Mom's favorite Rose scent and filled each paper sachet :)
For these 'scent'imental sachets, I used Carta Bella 'Beautiful Moments’ Collection!
my only electronic die cutting machine the Craftwell eCraft!
patterns from by SVGcuts
Lunch with Mom [rose]
Winter's Chill [flurish and swirl]
Love Me Do [hearts]
To start your project, you will want to download all the SVGcuts files I listed above. For each sachet make sure to cut a front and a back [with one a mirrored image] and add 'holes' where you want the scent to come through.
As you can see, by the photo above the rose petals are pretty large [leave them this way].
Adhere a small about of glue to the inside of each the front and backs. The Flourish and Heart I stitched them together with sewing machine.
Embellish, Ink up some edges and tie handmade ribbon though the eyelet and you’re done!
Adding little details of personalization will bring a warm-heart to any loved one.
Also, I added a matching card click here for that tutorial!
Thanks for poppin’ in and looking around! As always I love your comments:)
Hugs and Blessings,
