Opinions please!! The idea I had in my head didn't come out the way I had planned. I wrote words of things my mom is (wife, daughter, aunt, cosmetologist, special, etc) and used different ribbons on each tag. I used a circle punch to make the half circle in the pocket.
Would you want to receive something like this if you were a mom? If it's dorky or silly, I can make her another one. I think I'll add ink to the edges of the tag strips and maybe to the pocket.

I think it's really cute and the idea could be used for so many special occasions! I agree about some sponging or direct to paper on the little tags though...just alittle something extra! Good job though..I think she'll really like it!

I like your idea and it is cute....I personally am not a fan of the staple look and prefer the punch and tie method for the ribbon but that is a hot thing right now so either way your card is absolutely precious!!!! Nice JOb!!!!

I love this idea! I adore that idea of the little things your mother is to you and how you did that with the papers and stapled on ribbons, punch and tie would have been ok too, but if you are mailing it, it might be a little bulky.
I know I would be balling my eyes out if I got this card. TFS!

Your idea is so cute,, keep mulling and you will get there. Maybe fewer tags and more decorated or colors.. TFS I love the pocket and I have got to try one of these.
