Happy Easter Gifts for the Family!

Hello there!  Are you all ready for Easter?  I am not!  Have lots to do today because Easter is at our house tomorrow.  However, all the gifts and cards are ready to go for our guests!

Let's start with the cards for my parents and Johns mom. Started with card stock embossed with polka dots.  Used the window embossing folder on the white piece of paper.  Stamped the elegant egg, put a rhinestone in the middle of the egg and added a piece of ribbon and a bow to finish it off..  Sadly, this stamp is no longer available from Stampin' Up, but I love it so much I had to use it!!! Thanks again Julia for this great retired set!!!

Next we have cute little window boxes that I learned to make a couple of weeks ago at Stampin' Up demonstrator Karen Flores home.  Thanks Karen!  I love this box!
They will be filled with foil wrapped chocolate eggs. Yum!
 These are going to all the ladies in the house tomorrow.

 Lastly, I have the perfect gift for my teenage children and adult daughter.  Since they are older, I thought these recycled mason jars would be perfect!  I punched 3 graduated sizes of Stampin' Up circle scallops for the lids, topped with yellow buttons for my 2 young men and dahlias for the 2 young ladies . Put a layer of jelly beans in the bottom of each jar, circled peep bunnies around the sides and poured a few more jelly beans in the middle to keep the bunnies standing.
Wrapped bakers twine around the jar a few times and hung a Happy Easter tag on each one.
We are going to pick up Jamba Juice gift cards to go with the jars today. 
I woke up at 5:30 this morning (I must be nuts!) with a great idea to make little matching scallop envelopes to hold the gift cards in.  And there you have it a super easy, cute gift!
Mason jars are so versatile, you could adjust this project for just about any occasion!!!
I am so glad to have seen all the great ideas for mason jars at Pinterest!
Gotta love Pinterest!!!
 I wish you and yours a Very Happy and Blessed Easter!
 Be inspired to create!
