It's just a simple basket that I created with packets of seeds for planting. Because, Mother's plant seeds of LOVE, JOY, HOPE, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, etc. into children, I wanted to incorporate some of those little sayings into the gifts.
If you still haven't figured out what to get for your mother, this is a really quick and easy gift to create. I've even created a FREE printable for you to print too. It's at the bottom of this post.
The Mother's Day Sprinkled with Love Basket looks like so:
I purchased the basket and a few packets of seeds, I had the flower and the paper shred...
...and this adorable spot sprinkler is from Target. (it's tucked in the basket, you just can't see it.)
I LOVE the flower shape.
I created and printed the MOM card. Glued it to a few other layers of cardstock paper, added some flowers and a pearl embellishment to the O in love and some ribbon to the top of the card. I also created...
... some envelope type seed packet holders and the little circle tags. They read.. 'a mother plants seeds of LOVE, HOPE, JOY.'
To create the seed packet holders, I simply cut a 3 1/2 x 12 piece of scrapbook paper and scored and folded it about 3/4 of an inch from the top and the bottom.
and scored and folded it in the middle.
This is what it looks like on the inside.
I added a glue dot to the back of the packet to hold it in place.
Then folded the top over, punched a hole and added some pretty ribbon to the top.
Here's another peek at the finished basket:
