DIY Easy No-Sew Floral Drawer Sachets

Easy No-Sew Floral Drawer Sachets make beautiful and inexpensive "just because" gifts, last minute hostess gifts, and holiday stocking stuffers. This project can be completed in 10 minutes or less, from set up to clean up. Bonus: Not only is crafting an awesome stress relieving activity in its own right, the smell of the herbs will lift your spirit and calm your nerves.

To make your own Easy No-Sew Floral Drawer Sachets, you'll need:

  • scissors, bowl, and spoon
  • square of cotton fabric or cheese cloth; 6" x 6" or larger is a good size
  • one handful of your favorite dried herbs, flowers, and/or citrus peels
  • 5 drops of essential oil(s) (optional)
  • ribbon, twine, yarn, or other strong string; at least 6"
  • tea tag with pleasant quote or affirmation and string attached (optional)

Do this:

  1. Cut a square of fabric. (I used a book as a template/ cutting guide. Measure and mark if you feel like being more precise and neat, but it's totally not necessary for this project.)
  2. Cut ribbon.
  3. Mix desired herbs, flowers, peels, and essential oil in a bowl.
  4. Place in center of fabric square.
  5. Pull up two cat corners/ diagonal corners of fabric. Hold, then bring up alternate corners. Bunch corners together to create a bundle.
  6. Wrap ribbon tightly around bunched corners to hold closed. Make a bow. 
  7. Finally, wrap tea tag around ribbon, if using.
