Nothing like getting a Mother's Day post up when the day is almost over! I do hope all Moms and Moms-to-Be had a wonderful day. After a rainy Saturday, today was picture perfect. I spent the morning with my parents and the afternoon with my husband's family. We had a great time.
I made this tag and gift container for my Mom. I love that shabby, old-fashioned look. (My son asked if the woman on the tag was one of his aunts. I said she is no where near that old! But she does resemble her a bit.)
A piece of K&Co paper was aged a bit with Distress Ink in Antique Linen and Tea Dye and then glued onto a kraft tag. I just had to give it a coat of Martha Stewart glitter. The Wilton doily was also given a light coat of Distress Ink. Don't you love that adorable vintage image? I got it from Pinterest. The rose flower border and charms are Recollections. A coat of Glossy Accents and glitter was added to the Prima flowers. The delicate lacy butterfly is Martha Stewart. A piece of tea-stained twill from Melissa Phillips finishes the tag.
You can see the dimension a bit better here.
The container was made with pretty much the same items such as the paper and flowers. The butterfly used here is Recollections and the leaves are Prima. The key charm is Tim Holtz and the heart charm is Bead Landing. The lace is from Simplicity and was given a coat of Sand Glimmer Mist to tone down the white color. I also tucked in a few vintage buttons around the lid edge.
The butterfly, unfortunately, doesn't show up too well in these photos.
I did have one more Mother's Day card to share but I guess I forgot to upload it! I'll share it another time even though it will be after the fact. Thanks so much for stopping by and the sweet comments that you leave.
Have a wonderful week!
