We love making little gifts like this scented flower sachet. They are great gifts for moms, grandmothers, girlfriends, and teachers. And they make cute hostess gifts and nice little thank yous for bridesmaids and helpers. Who doesn’t love a pretty scented flower sachet?
This scented flower sachet is so easy to make! Just mix the dried herbs and spoon into a square of fabric. Cinch into a ball and you’re almost done! We like to top the sachet off with a silk flower and finish with a pretty ribbon tied into a bow.
Here’s a video we made showing how we put the sachet together.

How To Make A Scented Flower Sachet
Materials & Embellishments
Fabric, 9” square (we used silk)
Ribbon, 1/2″ wide
Silk flower, 3.5” diameter
Small rubber band
Dried lavender buds, 1/4 cup
Dried chamomile flowers, 1/4 cup
Flax seeds, 1/4 cup
Tools & Supplies
Hot glue and glue gun
Here are the steps to make the sachet:
1. To create the scented sachet filling, pour the flax seed, the lavender buds and the chamomile flowers into a bowl. Stir. We add the flax seed to give the sachet a little weight and body. the dried flowers are very light!
2. To make the sachet, lay the silk shantung square out on a table – good side down. 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. (Our rubberband came from our stash we used with a very popular rubberband loom!)
3. To embellish the sachet, use a little hot glue to attach the silk flower to the sachet. If your flower has a long stem, either pull it off or snip it off with wire cutters.
4. Finish the sachet by wrapping the ribbon around the top to hide the rubber band. Then tie the ribbon in a bow. Trim the ends.

Thanks for sharing. Great idea. Can you use something else to weight the bags?

You can skip the flax seed and just use more of either the lavender or the chamomile buds. A lot of sachets are made with just the scented herbs and fillings! Hope that helps!
