Mother's Day Gift

I took Nicki's idea from the can filled with memories and ran with it. I turned it into a mason jar filled with 42 reasons why my brothers & sisters and I love our mother. One reason for every year she's been our mother. The reasons in the jar are just simple phrases. I'm still working on the book where each brother and sister will have our own page with a pull-out page listing our reasons and stories and memories.
I made a little label on the jar saying, "How do we love thee? Let us count the ways..."

I added ribbon around the jar, then used rub-ons to add my brothers and sisters names all around it.

I made a new top for the jar from two papers stitched together. Says, "42 reasons why we love our mother!"

And these are the tags that went in the jar. They are just strips of paper distressed and tabs made of paper or ribbon stitched on the end. That just makes them easier to pull out of the jar.

is that your writing on the tags? If it is, your writing is awesome!
