Bunting cards and fragrance sachets

Hello all! I hope all of you moms out there had a lovely Mother's Day!

I thought I would share with you what I gave to two of the special women in my life: my mom and my mother-in-law. I knew I wanted to give them something hand-made (and put my new sewing machine to use!). So I came up with this idea for fragrance sachets-- they are useful, look pretty and smell wonderful. A win-win, right? I also included some hand-made cards and little notes of ideas for using the sachets.

(Sidenote: I hope they aren't offended when they read this and discover each received the same gift. But I truly thought it was something they would each enjoy!) 

Cards with embroidered "Mom" bunting

The pink and green vanilla-scented sachets

The blue sachets. I attached ribbon to the tops 
so they could hang from, as well as lay on, something.

These could be used in closets, in dressers, on door knobs, in hampers, in the car, etc. Lots of possibilities. All while looking lovely :-)

These are fab, I wish I could sew!! I would totally use these in my drawers! Who wouldn't want their clothes to smell pretty?! Well, my Mr. might not be too thrilled if I had his clothes smell too pretty! Hee hee. OXO Natalie

Those are too cute! I may have to make some myself. Always looking for ways to make things smell nice. :D

Thanks! And they were incredibly easy and a great way to use pieces of fabric you already have lying around.
