How to Make a Scented Paper Sachet

Think outside the box a little bit about envelopes. These can be seed packets, over sized tea bag covers, or even a small paper bag. The envelope above was made from decorative vellum.

Assemble your envelope, add dried flowers using a paper funnel, seal and embellish as desired. With some imagination, digital collage, fabric, ribbon or other bits, these can be really quite pretty!
