Custom Scented Perfume Recipe for “You’re Scent-sational!” Printable Valentines

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

.5 oz Cyclomethicone
.12 oz. fractionated coconut oil
.05 oz. fragrance oil of choice

Instructions:

This custom scented perfume recipe will yield four 4mL perfumes for a total of four “You’re Scent-sational!” printable Valentines. The usage rate of the fragrance oil for this perfume recipe is 8%. Therefore you’ll need to choose a fragrance oil that is safe at 8% when used in perfumes. Typically you can refer to the manufacturer or supplier for this information. For some fragrance oils, you can use an even higher percentage fragrance if desired for a stronger, longer lasting scent.

To create more than four custom scented perfume printable Valentines, simply double or triple the recipe as needed. For smaller amounts and depending on the scale you are using, you may need to convert the ounce measurement to a gram, which is a much smaller unit of measure.

For this customer scented perfume recipe I used a Rose Cognac Sugar fragrance oil. You can safely use up to 33% of this fragrance in your perfume spray recipe if desired. I also really like this Chocolate Orchid fragrance oil for this recipe, however, you’ll need to reduce the amount of fragrance oil to .03 oz. (5%) with this scent.  (If you prefer to use essential oils, use half the amount.)

Using a digital scale, weigh out all of the ingredients and combine in a glass container. Stir well to combine, then using a transfer pipette, evenly fill four 4mL glass vials with sprayers. You can buy these containers in bulk at SKS Bottle & Packaging where I found mine.

Tightly screw the sprayer cap onto each vial.

Now download and print the PDF for my printable Valentines here. You should print your Valentines onto cardstock paper.

This printable Valentine’s Day card features clip art from Old Cauldron Design, specifically from this Valentine’s Day collection. If you prefer to use a different clip art image, simply purchase the clip art you’d like to use and follow my tutorial for creating custom soap labels. It’s the same concept, only the sizes and paper type used are different.

Once you’ve printed out the desired number of printable Valentines onto cardstock, place a perfume vial onto the Valentines. Use a exacto knife to cut two small slits on either side of the vial. Now push ribbon through the slits on either side from the back of the Valentine and tie the ribbon on the front of the card around the perfume vial. Repeat for each Valentines you’re creating.

All that’s left is to gift your Valentines to your best friends and other favorite people!

Homemade Valentine's Day Gift Ideas - Creative Ideas for Custom DIY Handmade Gifts - Hand Embroidered Paper Cards and Keepsakes
Remember those sewing card books you could buy at the grocery store when you were a kid? They had pre-punched holes to sew around colorful images with yarn and huge plastic needle. I loved those! My favorites were always the Holly Hobby ones. Well this embroidered journal page (pictured above) from One Sheepish Girl brought back those awesome memories and has me kicking myself for not picking up needles and embroidery thread when I was out at A.C. Moore on Saturday.
I love the idea of paper embroidery. It’s a great way to save your favorite memories and make a terrific keepsake to pass down through generations in your family. You could use paper embroidery to customize a blank journal to give as a gift, to create a souvenir of your relationship with someone special, or simply embroider an image onto card stock to make a lovely handmade Valentine’s Day card.

It’s officially less than two weeks until Valentine’s Day! Do you your gifts ready? Since my boyfriend and I are currently looking for an abode to share I decided to buy him something I know he’ll use again and again for Valentine’s Day – a french press. I also bought him some whole bean organic fair trade coffee from Larry’s Beans to pair with it. He loves their Bean Martin Roast, but Fresh Market happened to have some of their El Salvador Dali Blend here locally so I picked up some of it for him to try. And lucky me. I happened to walk in on my guy making reservations for me for Valentine’s Day at one of my favorite restaurants downtown – Lucky.
