Mother's Day Gifts

I love making gifts, especially for something special like Mother's Day!!  Although this time around, I had the pleasure of putting together gifts for my son's Mother's Day stall at his school.  My lovely friend Fliss of My Beading Heart made these exquisitely cute earrings for me that I could send to the stall as gifts.

Earrings as you know are delicate, so I have to package them up nicely to withstand the kids at school looking for gifts.  So I punched some butterflies with my butterfly punch and used them to hook the earrings on.  I had bought some small gift boxes, chocolates and clear cellophane to wrap and some cute pink ribbon.

Now the hardest part was (for my son anyway!!) was to not eat the chocolates!!  But I decided these little gifts needed something.  So I grabbed my stash of papers, and used my favourite punches to make gift cards.  The Blossom punch is perfect for making quick cards.  Punch the flower, maybe even punch a coordinating centre and stick.  Easy.  I used the Modern Label punch to cut the sentiments (using the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set).  Voila!  The gifts were done.  Sadly I sent them off to school today.  Maybe Luke might buy one for me for Mother's Day!!
