i made these cute cinnamon butterfly drawer sachets:



i followed a recipe for cinnamon ornaments from the sampler but i'll replicate it here.

1/4 cup white glue
1/2 cup applesauce
1 cup ground cinnamon

mix everything in a bowl and let sit for 30 minutes to stiffen. if it's really dry, add a bit of water (i had to do this). roll out dough to 1/2 inch. i rolled it out between two pieces of waxed paper which helped with the stickyness. cut out into shapes (i made butterflies and purses) and use a straw (or toothpick) to poke holes if desired (for ribbon decoration or hanging). let dry on a cookie sheet for two days or cook in 200 degree oven for 2 hours (flip halfway though drying). decorate as desired. i tied ribbons through the holes i made in mine. wrap in clear plastic bags, tie with ribbon and create an instructive label least anyone think these are cookies!

They don't crumble. I got the recipe a few years ago in a children's craft book, and I made a whole bunch of Christmas shapes and strung them with a holiday plaid ribbon and red mardi-gras type beads, and they're still holding up. You can also make them into ball shapes for your drawers or to insert in sneakers (mmm...sweet feet, teehee). They're really very versatile. I don't think there are any alternatives to applesauce, no.

This is a cute idea that ive seen before and always wanted to try out.  Im meeting my best friend's highschool friends this weekend so that we all know each other before her wedding this summer, and i'm thinking ill make one of these for each girl as a nice little token of friendship.  Plus Mother's day is just around the bend... wonder how many a batch makes?

Thanks for the tutorial!

Thats a really good idea. And with yours all dolled up by the packaging, it looks, well, FOXY. Great job. I out to try this, considering I stick a box of dryer sheets in my drawers. Teehee

Gosh, the one batch I made I got about 12-18 shapes from. It makes a lot! It depends on your cookie-cutter size, obviously, but I free-hand cut some purses with a butter knife about 2-3" long. I had plenty for birthday and Valentine gifts (when I made them it was a week before V-day).

Whew, did it!  That dough was wicked fussy.. i had to just keep adding applesauce water and glue until it wasnt crumbly anymore.  I got a dozen, and thats how i did the purses too! I sharpied on some details and added a rhinestone and bow for glamour. 

Turned out way cute.  And now, NOW i have some gifts to give.   ...and i found cinnamon for 50cents a jar at walmart.  ..score.
