Super Easy Scent Sachets

Super Easy Scent Sachets

Use paper napkins to sew up easy and inexpensive scent sachets with your favorite aromatherapy herbs. Throw one in your clothing and linen drawers to scent everything. Remember that lavender makes a great moth repellant for wool items. This project comes to us compliments of Heidi Borchers for Inspired at Home.


Easy Napkin Scent Sachets


  • Paper napkin(s) – design of choice
  • Sewing machine
  • Herbs – lavender flowers
  • Trims and embellishments (optional)
  • Aleene’s® No Sew Fabric Glue


  1. Note that each sachet uses two thicknesses of the napkin with all the plies attached. It’s the layers that give the paper napkin more durability. Determine where you want the pattern/design on each sachet and decide the size you want. Cut out about ½” larger than finished sachet. Line up edges, place wrong sides together and stitch a ¼” seam on three sides.
  2. Fill the sachet’s unstitched open end with the lavender and tap down.
  3. Stitch the last edge up and trim the edges to about ¼ inch.
  4. Small trims and trinkets can also be glued to the top of the sachet.

Heidi’s Designer Tip: I stitched the edges using a sewing machine. I like the clean look of the stitches and how quickly you can sew up a whole batch of these. If you don’t sew, you can glue the edges together with Aleene’s No Sew Glue. Remember though that you need to glue all the layers together!
