Mason Jar Mother's Day (or any day) Gift

Mason jars are great for so many things, including gift giving.  For mother's day this year I decided to fill mason jars instead of just throwing things in a gift bag.
I started by tapping off the jars with frog tape and plastic bags.
Then I sprayed on a few coats of blue spray paint. 
Once everything was dry, I put brown crinkle paper in the bottom of each jar then filled the rest with goodies (gift card, jewelry, chocolate and travel tissues just because I liked the patterns). 
The lids were spray painted gold and wrapped in ribbon to finish off the jars.  After I was done and stood back to look at them, they seemed a little too plain.  So, I grabbed a blank card cut it in half and attached it to the jars with jute.  
 It wasn't the right color, but I liked the bright mint green, so I just went for it.

Not only did this idea work for giving a mother's day gift, but would also work for any gift giving occasion.
