My mom's Birthday Goodies

My moms birthday is tomorrow and I never know just what to get her. I'm always nervous about giving homemade gifts, just because I am nervous that they are not good enough. But I was really really happy with how this turned out. The jar was our orange juice bottle cleaned out and sanded lightly. (Came up with that because of the Cuttlebug challenge; reuse and alter.) I bought almond hershey nuggets and covered them with paper from the new rustic stack from DCWV (BEAUTIFUL paper) I glued a trim around the whole bottle and made the center piece by using cuts from Accent Essentials and the script embossing folder. Thanks for looking!
