I hope everyone had a super, wonderful Mother's Day. I worked part of the day and then went to celebrate the special day with my Mom. I bought her a couple of things, but decided to make a few things too. I made something for both my Mom and Grandma. Just wanted to share what I did.
I made Mom a memo holder from one of the sweet tins in the store. I love the size of this one. It can be used for all sorts of good stuff. I used my Sizzix to cut out a flower which I decorated with paper tape (I'm really loving that stuff!) And then I decorated the tin window with the same tape. Might be a little too much pink for some. I'm a pink fanatic. Used Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine and a button to finish off my flower. I used Shabby Chic Stamp Co. Mother's Day stamps. They have a ton of sweet sentiments. I punched the tag with one of my EK Success punches and finished it off with my Valentine Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine.
The small envelope is for a gift card that I purchased for Mom as well.
For the memo sheets, I printed the red lines first and then I used one of my Sizzix dies to cut out the cards. These are about the size of a 3x5 index card, so they are nice and big. I stamped "I'm so blessed to have you!" along the top and added a flower stamp at the bottom.
We both love Scentsy, so these were her "flowers." I just stamped different sentiments on them (nothing fancy).
This next one is for my Grandmother. I did her's in blue and green and used paper from my stash. I also used more tape to frame the window and added lots of buttons -- all kinds of stuff to make it pretty. I bought Hershey's Nuggets on the way to add to Gram's tin, so she would have something yummy inside.
These were so fun and easy to make.
Thanks for stopping by.
