Mother’s Day is this Sunday! Are you ready? I always have a hard time coming up with something for my mom and mother in law because they really don’t need anything and don’t have a ton of space. So I thought about what they might want that wouldn’t take up too much space and still involved their grand kids. My first thought was chocolate, because I know that something that they both love. Then I thought that it would be fun to give them hugs and kisses from their grand kids since we won’t be with them on Mother’s Day. Here is a Mother’s Day gift idea that I know they will love!
(Sorry Mom that I’m ruining the surprise…. surprise!).
So this is what I came up with:
This is how I made them:
I took lots of hugs and kisses candies (three bags) and then I created some little circles for the bottom of them. I also printed off some pictures of my kids and made them about 2 inches. I printed it all off onto Silhouette’s sticker paper. Then using my coluzzle circle cutter I cut out the circles. A 3/4″ circle hole punch would be perfect for these (couldn’t find mine) and you could also just cut them out with scissors. I made up a free printable, you can get it here.
It was super easy once I got the circles cut out. I just peeled off the back and placed them onto the candy.
Here are a few of the designs that I created to give it a little more variety and color. You could even use these for a teacher appreciation gift or just to have at a party.
I filled up a mason jar and then added a cute lid. Then I tied the little tag onto it with baker’s twine. I love giving mason jars because that’s a gift in itself, they can reuse it.
