WHAT TO DO
1. To create the scented sachet filling, pour the cloves and flaxseed into a bowl. Add 10 drops of the cinnamon essential oil and stir.
2. To make the sachet, lay the silk shantung square out on a table. Spoon the sachet filling onto the center of the square. Gather the corners and edges of the fabric square tightly together to create a ball. Secure the fabric at the top with a small rubber band.
3. Snip the stem of the poinsettia 2″ from the base of the red leaves. Paint the tips of each red leaf with glue and immediately sprinkle with red glitter. Then dab the yellow buds in the center with glue and sprinkle them with gold glitter. Stick the remaining stem down into the center of the sachet.
4. Finish the sachet by wrapping the silver ribbon around the top to conceal the rubber band. Then tie the ribbon in a tidy knot and trim the ends at an angle. Happy holidays!
