Christmas Refillable Sachet Ornament
Designed By Julie A. Bolduc
I made this sachet refillable because potpourrie does tend to lose it's scent over time. It is really small and fast to make. I used real Balsam Fir cuttings to fill this sachet but if you do not have access to a Fir tree, you can use any potpourrie which is made for christmas. You do not need much filling. Just 1 tablespoon. Plus this will make a wonderful bazaar item.
