I’ve always been a big fan of making handmade Mother’s Day gifts. Granted I did used to make them out of sheer necessity in school because I had no money (sorry for the hand-painted rocks, Mom!), but now I like to add a handmade touch to pair with my store bought gifts just to show that I took the time and care.

This DIY bath sachet gift set and is quick and simple enough to add to any gift, or could be easily transitioned into party or wedding favors. Who couldn’t use a fresh chamomile or mint infused bath every now and then?

Materials:

  • Card stock
  • Scissors
  • Rectangular coffee filters
  • Freshly ground lavender, mint, chamomile or other herbal scents
  • Martha Stewart craft glue (c/o)
  • Martha Stewart flourish frame layered craft punch (c/o)
  • Martha Stewart scoring board (c/o)
  • Pencil

First, we’ll make the sachets. Lay a rectangular coffee filter flat, and place your scents of choice in the midway on the right side. Then fold the filter like a hot dog, and folding the top and bottom flaps inward.

Use the Martha Stewart craft glue to adhere the band to itself. This way the band slips off before using the sachets in water.
