Last Minute Mother’s Day Paper Crafting

Just a little time left to make something handmade for Mother’s Day.  Here are a few ideas of projects you can make using your scrap supplies and maybe a little more:

Sandie Downey, from Australia, shares a rainbow of Mother’s Day cards in several of her posts here.  She had to make a bunch up in a hurry so picked a monochromatic theme for each one.  A couple of photos are shown at right.

Jill Brush, from California, made a bright and colourful butterfly on canvas and used Tim Holtz’s new crackle paints, paint, popdots, chipboard, and a butterfly image from the net as a pattern.  This would make a lovely gift for Mother’s Day.  All you need to do is enlarge your paper piecing to fit centred on your canvas.  Love the ‘lemonade’ coloured paint background on this – so summery!  One photo is shown at left, but you can see more here and also read more about her process.

Lilia, from Flea Market Studio, altered some dollar store journals with lovely papers and ribbon.  This would make a beautiful heart felt gift for Mother’s Day.  Look how easy and cheap this is too.

I also love the idea of this card. It’s an actual Mother’s Day card made by a child in 1967.  Wouldn’t it be cute made out of scrap supplies?  It’s child-sized hands turned into a card shape.

Allison Curry made a pretty Mother’s Day card shown below.

Megan Hoeppner shows how to make a bracelet with matching card for Mother’s Day on the Paper Crafts site.  She uses those cute ribbon slides from Maya Road!

Erin Mason made a cute ‘exploding box’ for her Mother for Mother’s Day. (Photo shown at right.) This would be a good little gift box/card all in one to make up.  Here is a free template by Crafty Templates (scroll down and the PDF link is on the right).
