I wanted to show you the goodies I whipped up for the special moms in my life the other weekend...
First off, I filled some glassine bags with pretty colored treats...
I decorated the bags with fabric scrap flags, meaningful verses, little labels, and sewed it all together with a zig-zag stitch.
I made fabric covered little envelopes... to hold simple little Mother's Day notes.
I wrapped Hershey's Nuggets with Avery address labels... which I had printed vintage floral patterns and polka dots on.
And finally, I wrapped little boxes in vintage sewing pattern paper and vintage Montgomery Ward catalog pages... (I don't have a pic of the one in the catalog pages :( ) to hold all the goodies! I used plenty of double stick tape to secure the brittle paper onto the box... that worked much better than regular tape or glue.
I liked the wrapped boxes so much, I think I'm going to have to make some for myself... they'd look great on my office shelves :)
