Here is the box with the cards and envelopes in it
Now the pink birthday present:
Can you tell it is an easel card with a drawer? I also made three 4x4 mini cards with the house designer paper and put a pink post-it-notepad on it. If I had a little pink pen to put inside it, I would have! But now to get them gift wrapped:
Now here's another gift for her - the yellow ruffled paper flower pin on the gift on the right - here is a closeup of it:
It was getting late, late, late, so I did a quick yellow tag and used a little gold safety pin to attach the Happy Mother's Day tag to the yellow striped ribbon, that I tied around the cellophane Easter bag. When you have to mail things, you are kinda limited on how you can wrap them so the postage costs are minimal - got to love that bubble wrap. My mom always says Oh, it costs so much to mail stuff, so don't send anything....but since she has a degree in art, I know she appreciates my hand-made crafty stuff....and she is the one who taught me to sew at age 10. Okay now her gifts are all ready to put into a box and mail....So what are your plans for Mother's Day? Have a great and safe Mother's Day no matter how you celebrate it!
P.S. Here are the two blog addresses that inspired these projects:
