Friday: Pefect (Inexpensive) Mother's Day Gift for Little Fingers

This week's Crafty Friday project is for Mother's Day. Price to make? (depending on the bag) less than a buck! Win-win, right?

Potpourri Sachet Bag (for mom)

1. Send your kids out in the yard or to the park to collect various leaves and flowers
2. Dry the flowers/leaves by either tying them together with string and hanging them, or else by pressing them in between the pages of a large, heavy book (if you press them, make sure to put wax paper down first to protect the book)
3. Mix 1/2 cup of baby oil with 4 Tb of your favorite flavoring (vanilla, lemon, mint, etc.) or your favorite perfume/body spray
4. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of your dried flowers and leaves and sprinkle the baby oil/scent combination on to
5. Portion into sachet bags (make simple drawstring bags from extra fabric or buy them at the dollar store)

BOOM! Gift for mom? Check. Made by kids? Check. Low price? Double check. Actually a cool thing to have in the towel closet, linen closet, or drawers for freshening? Of course. Need more ideas for a DIY mother's day gift? Try out DIY Sugar Scrub or DIY Bath Salts.
