How to Make Envelope Sachets
Make envelope sachets with potpourri. (blue envelope image by Marek Kosmal from

Make a sachet with special ingredients in a pretty container. Although a standard sachet uses dainty fabric to contain the potpourri, you can also make a simple, but sweet, little sachet in an envelope. Choose rose petals for their heady scent or lavender blossoms with a calming aroma and your creative work is nearly finished. Add a few decorative touches to the envelope and you have perfect little sachets to tuck into a lingerie drawer.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Small envelope
  • Floral stamps
  • Stamp pads
  • Hand-sewing needle
  • ½ cup of dried rose petals or lavender blossoms
  • 10 to 20 drops of rose or lavender essential oil
  • Small bowl

  1. 1

    Ink the floral stamps with ink from the stamp pads and stamp several flower stamps onto the outsides of the envelope in a design you like.

  2. 2

    Insert the pointed tip of the needle through both paper layers of the envelope to create holes in the paper. The holes will allow the scents of the potpourri to waft through the paper sachet. Make random holes, holes in a geometric shape. Martha recommends creating simple designs or pictures with the holes. More holes will allow the sachet to emit more scents, so make a generous number of holes to cover the entire surface of the envelope (spacing them as close as 1/8 inch).

  3. 3

    Mix the dried rose petals or lavender blossoms with the appropriate essential oil in the small bowl (rose oil with rose petals and lavender oil with lavender blossoms). Mix the ingredients lightly with your hands, tossing the dried flowers to coat them with essential oil.

  4. 4

    Place the dried flowers into the envelope and seal the envelope by moistening the envelope flap.
