A little inspiration needed

Only one card today- from a template I found on a great blog http://littlebookofsketches.blogspot.com/

I started making adoption cards when my sis adopted my gorgeous niece and then my nephew a year later-I have a very small online shop selling adoption cards now,good thing I like making kids designs, although I admit I struggle with girls cards-boys are always more fun!
I still have another 2 to make for my niece for other family members to send to her and 3 for my nephew, as well as another birthday card for him!I need some inspiration please -every Christmas I try to make a little something handcrafted for my sisters, Mum and best mate. I've saved these little kilner style jars to tart up-but what to fill them with? They are pretty small, about 4 inches high and 3 inches across-any ideas would be greatfully received!

Probably a silly idea, but wondering if perhaps you could make a jar of promises - use plenty of decorated tags - so that there is something for them later in the year - do you have the opportunity of taking them out? Perhaps make one or two 'vouchers' that they can 'redeem' at a later date - in exchange for a book or a toy or a MacD outing or something? I know ... probably a silly idea.

Aww what a fabby idea those adoption cards, and a lovely welcoming memory. Those kilner jars are great! I say lots of yummy ribbon and pretty paper, with perhaps a decorated tag or label! And thats only the outside! Maybe a mini card kit inside,, with embellies, or toppers?
Funny I usually find boys cards harder than girls! Think dovecraft is the company that do a scrappaper kids range, and I just got the Nana's kids by DCWV
