Now you have your fresh smelling air freshener. You can put it in your car or in a locker. You can put it in your drawer if you want too. I hope you have enjoyed this instructable.

By the Way, if you park your car outside on a nice hot or sunny day, the dryer sheets will be activated by heat and  will smell even better! Why? Because the car is like dryer, it heats up and the heat activates the smell.

Thank you and Enjoy!

i love this instructable. i recently made a paper mario air freshener. for other results you could just put a regular air freshener under your design. but tat kind of defeats the purpose of saving money.
Hey this was neat. I've found those boughten trees are pretty strong so I will try this with a simple pine freshener sheet and a clip art tree for fun. Thanks for posting.

Great idea! The store-bought air fresheners are too strong and expensive.

I might use this as a guideline for my own airfreshener. I thought about doing this only with cloth instead of paper, and instead of fabric softener using crushed potpurri. Oh, and how could I forget, great Instructable.
This is a really cute idea. I keep dryer sheets in my trunk and they keep my car smelling pretty nice. :)
whatb do you search on google to find that kind of pixle look btw i love this instructable good job
