Shabby Chic Sachet Gift Set & Blog Hop Candy!!

Happy Friday y'all & welcome to the Your Memories Here Handmade Holiday Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Cassie's blog then you are in the right place! If not, simply hop back to Cassie & get started there. I am so happy you to decide to stop by...there will be fabulous gift inspiration along the way & an amazing prize package from the YMH Store after you are done hopping! Woo-Hoo! For my holiday gift idea, I decided to share a super easy, shabby chic potpourri sachet that features Prima & Tattered Angels products you can purchase in the Your Memories Here Store.

Paper/Lacey Ribbon/Pearls/Flowers - Prima
Glimmer Mist/Canvas Ribbon - Tattered Angels
Crepe Paper/Adhesive/Eyelet/Distress Ink - Stash

I do have to give credit where it is due & must say that I got this fabulous idea from Amy at Then She Made. I loved her cute sachets & decided to make some of my own for my mom -it's such a simple & pretty holiday gift...maybe for a teacher, friend, or to accompany another gift you are giving. The only thing I did a lot differently is that instead of sewing the sachets as Amy did (just check out her post HERE for the tutorial,) I simply used hot glue. It worked wonderfully & was more convenient for me. I also picked up several sachets from $ Tree & then snipped them open to pour into my sachets. So essentially, this holiday gift could cost you no more than $2 for the sachets if you already have the other items on hand, like I did!! Besides, any excuse is a good excuse to pick up more crafty goodies from the YMH Store! To finish it off, I made a simple shabby gift tag to go along with the sachets.

Here is the hop order:
Crystal (you are here!)

In order to win the fabulous candy, you must visit each DT blog & leave a comment. When you are done visit the YMH DT Blog & leave another comment.
