Expressionery stamps are great for all kinds of DIY projects. Everything from gifts for friends, rainy day activities for kids or making something special for yourself, like these handy lavender sachets.
Lavender is a calming herb used in aromatherapy to help with insomnia, restlessness or anxiety. It can be found at a local craft store, but any herb and spice shop should also sell lavender. Lavender is typically sold in a loose format as buds. For most DIY projects you won’t need much, so a small bag (about 8 ounces) will suffice.
To make a lavender sachet, find muslin bags in an appropriate size from your local craft supply store. Use a personalized Expressionery stamp to customize the bag. Next, measure out 1/2- 1 cup of lavender. Pour into the bag. Seal the bag and you’re all set!
When you’ve finished creating the sachet, repeat with as many muslin bags as you like. Expressionery stamps work great on muslin fabric, as long as you don’t attempt to wash the material! Once you’ve finished all the sachets store them in one of the following places for optimal freshness:
- undergarment storage area
- overnight inside shoes
- inside luggage
- inside gym bags
- storing seasonal clothing
- inside a bathroom
- underneath a pillow
- hanging in a closet
- inside a car
- hanging on a guest room doorknob
- as a gift tag on a package
- inside linen closet
