Please see yesterday's post for the instructions on how to print, cut out, glue, etc. The sachet envelopes work best if printed onto paper.
Here is a violet design for the little sachet/potpourri envelope, ready to print and prepare:
And here is one, below, that is ready to color in, with whatever you like to use: Pastels, colored pencils, watercolors, colored chalk. I don't think colored chalk gets the respect due it.

When I was very young, I drew with pieces of broken bricks. It was easy to find suitable bricks in New Orleans, if you knew where to look. In the truly olde days many houses were built with what is called "soft brick." The bricks were small and plump, with corners that had been worn, and there were colors from ivory to pink to red to a dark reddish taupe. Remember that "Indian Earth" makeup? It looked like red brick dust, to me.
Finally, here's a plain one, for those who have rubber stamps or who draw freehand:
As always, thank'ee for stopping by.
