DIY with the Fab Miss B: Instant Monogrammed Sachets

I love giving sachets as little stocking stuffers but this year I wanted to do something quick and simple. Want to play along? You will need:

Drawstring Muslin Bags- Also available at Hardware Store or Supermarkets

To package as I did: You will also need a pair of socks, some twine and a paper flower.

Slip something thick like cardstock or boxboard inside your muslin bag to keep the ink from seeping through to the back. Ink up your stamp, and place it firmly on the bag. Do not rock your stamp from side to side- this makes a blurry image and often creates smudge marks. Just hold it firmly and evenly in place with steady pressure.

Let dry thoroughly. I took the added step of adding Monograms for each of the lucky recipients.

So cute! Now fill them up with lavender or dried fragrant plants of your choice.

I paired mine with a fresh white pair of socks, a little twine and a cheery sunflower on top along with a note that said "Here's a little something to keep your stockings smelling sweet all year long!". Who wouldn't love to find this little treat in the bottom of her Christmas Stocking on December 25th?

What's the best stocking stuffer you've ever gotten?
