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.
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).
