Simple Mother’s Day gift

Today I’m going to show you a simple Mother’s day gift you can make super fast! This gift is perfect for a junk journaling Mother, a seamstress Mother, a teacher Mother, just about any Mother! Especially the ones that keep the home running and hold “everything together”.


  • Clear glass bottle (or a mason jar you find in your cupboards) THESE are the ones I used.
  • Assorted buttons- they could be a personal collection for a special touch or you can just buy an assortment. THESE are the buttons I used.
  • A paper tag (or some cardstock to make your own)
  • Twine or ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Marker or pen to write on the tag (or you can get fancy and print something)

Step 1: Make sure your glass bottle is clean and dry.
Step 2: Fill your bottle with your assorted buttons. Fill as full or as little as you would like. Put the lid on.
Step 3: Cut out your tag or grab your tag, and write your message on it. I wrote, “Mother’s are like buttons, they hold everything together.”
Step 4: Attach your tag using twine or ribbon. Deliver to that special Mother in your life!

Now, how’s that for a simple Mother’s day gift?! This jar of buttons can even be made for free by rounding up supplies in your home. Mom will love it!

Keep crafting!
