Mother's Day

I don't know where the time is going...I can't believe that Mother's Day is already this Sunday!!! Time to get on the ball!!! Here are a couple of ideas, in case you're running behind like me!!! I knew I wanted to get this Martha Stewart fence punch when I saw it on Cheryl's blog. (I got mine at Crafts in the City). I incorporated the punch into a simple box pattern that you can download here. Just cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. Use double stick tape on the 4 tabs. Be sure to punch the front edge with the fence punch before you tape the box together.



I decorated some mini clothespins with flowers and bugs to keep with the garden look of the white picket fence...and filled some bags with spring colored m&m's.

Using the same box, I made a little stationery set. I made a set of 4 tri-fold cards with coordinating stickers. You can get these stickers at any office supply store...the kind you use for files.



Here's a closer look at what's inside:







Stamps used: #1022 (Bee), #1023 (Butterfly, #3027 (Ladybug), #4039 (Snail) and #1301 (Happy Mom's Day). Have a great day!!!
