Since I had just made a birthday gift for Jake and had all the supplies out, I wrapped my Mom a gift the same way. With 75% off paper and ribbon I had gotten at Michael's.
My mom has a set of Christmas dishes from like 1996 so I e-bay'd a few pieces for her to dole out to her over the Fall and Winter season for her to use this Christmas. I posted about my quest for hostess pieces here. I used this ornament as her gift tag that I've had forever (since my Teddy Bear lover days). I sharpie markered her name on it. I glued it into place with a foam tape square. I wonder if she remembers giving it to me like 15 years ago? lol
I won the e-bay bid for the 8 salad plates she needed for the price of 4!! WooHoo!
I gifted it to her for driving us to and from the airport for our trip to the farm.
She was shocked and amazed...totally unexpected.
I had also just given her the yard of fabric in this Debbie Mumm pattern I got for $5. I gave it to her for watching the boys while we went to the movies. :0)
She is gonna make a few fabric squares for the center of her tables with it.
I made out well with both gifts and she is happy!
