Dollar Tree Mother's Day

I know I have bored ya'll to tears with my tales of my You Tube love of Dollar Tree posts. Electic Kristen is one of my favorite Dollar Tree channels. This year I decided to challenge myself to do some Mother's Day Tote Bags for my daughter and daughter in laws. Tell me what you think!!

I have tried these candies at the Dollar Tree and they are fresh and delicious. I think there are six or seven pieces in each bag.

Kristen told her viewers about this sachet...smells so good. I did package the sachets and the candies in separate zip lock bags. I did not want the sachet to make the candy taste like sachet.:)

I have tried some of these myself and they are very nice..similar to Bath and Body Works.

Amelia loves butterflies so she got some cute paper plates and napkins.

Paper Straws....

Cute note cards...

A cute pad...here is the inside...


These come in handy to carry grocery bags or to add something to a stroller handle.

These bath puffs are so cute...

LA Colors nail polish...a good brand for a good price.

Dollar Tree has really upped their card selection!

And I found this cute tote bag to put everything into!! Add some tissue paper to the top and you have a gift bag to be proud of for a cost of $14.

I found out that the vine is a Cross Vine, a member of the trumpet vine family. Thanks to my cousin, Steve and  blog friend Aritha for helping me out.  My cousin, Steve, is a retired Georgia Forrest Ranger and when he told me that was the name I was certain he was right.  If you google Cross vine, you will see that it is an exact match! You are never too old to learn.  Thanks to all on Facebook and here in the Blog world for your comments.

Glad to learn what your vine is - I've never seen one before. I love your Dollar Tree gift. Those paper straws are the cutest.
I made something similar for the mom and daughter that are our neighbors at Christmas and they loved it. It was fun putting it together too.
Have a great day, Arlene.

What wonderful bags of goodies you put together for your family members, Arlene! I have been more impressed with Dollar General's assortment of greeting cards than that of Hallmark.

I am glad you were able to learn the name of the vine you shared and a bit more about it. And you are right about never being too old to learn new things.
