Personal Notes:
This is a fun activity for children to make.
The Greenvale Cloverite 4-H kids made these cut-outs as a fun project. They smell very nice and are great to hang in a closet or put into a drawer to scent.
**The cinnamin can be purchased at a co-op in bulk form, making is much cheaper than buying in a can.
