Polkadoodles Challenge 17 – Potpourri Sachets

Friday, 11 September 2009

“Anything but a Card” was the challenge set this week. After a bit of hard thinking I came up with making Potpourri sachets. Easy to make, cut out 2 hearts, stitch them together but fill with potpourri just before you finish, make bows and attach and decorate. These would be perfect in your undies drawer, hanging in your wardrobe or as Kath suggested they would make great wedding favours. Made with Christmassy papers and filled with Christmas scented  potpourri they would look great hung on the tree. They are so versatile, the possibilities are endless. Check out the other awesome designs at the Polkadoodles blog.

For more Polkadoodles, watch Create and Craft - Sky channel 671 on Tuesday 15 September at 9am. Nikky will be demonstrating her two brand new rubber stamp collections that complement the Jingle Jangle Christmas and Candy Doodles CDs. I have my mitts on both of these gorgeous sets and they so easy to use and give lovely crisp images.
