Our mums definitely deserve a little love, and here are some excellent ways to show it.
No Mother's Day is complete without a lovely card – and it’s all the better when you handmake one. Even if you’re not a regular card-maker, the time and effort you put in will mean it will be something that is treasured for years. Once you have the blank, Hunkydory’s Square Little Book of Mum Mantras (464842) will make an excellent topper or insert as it’s filled with a range of fun, cheeky and positive mum-themed quotes. Then, comes the fun decorating part!
Flowers are another Mother's Day staple, but sadly the real thing doesn’t last very long. Why not put those crafty skills to use and create some realistic faux flowers, that can be put on display all year-long. Fleurs Flower-Making Mulberry Paper Collection in Daffodil (462963) is a great choice for making them, as it’s seasonally-appropriate and the results are always stunning.
It’s always a shame that wrapping paper has one use then it is thrown away. But by sewing a special fabric wrapping, it can be pinned closed around a present and reused year after year. This gives you a fantastic opportunity to make the wrapping as beautiful as it can be. Use a gorgeous fabric, such as the Vintage Splendour Collection (465190), and take your time – the result is guaranteed to be lovely!
Instead of a card, or perhaps as well as, you can craft a lovely tag to go with your gift. Anna Marie Designs’ MDF Hearts (466038) give you the perfect base to start with, and you can let your creativity run wild as you decorate it – acrylic paint, chalk paint, marbling, markers, clay or decoupage for dimension, embellishments, glossy finishes… the options are infinite!
If you’re interested in making something she can treasure forever, jewellery-making could be the answer. Even if you’re new to the craft, it’ll be a wonderful first experience. TotallyBeads’ Rainbow Heart Jewellery Kit (442803) gives you everything you need to make something special, as it contains Czech Preciosa heart charms, medium and large chains, and jump rings.
There’s nothing better than special moments spent together, and journalling is a great way to preserve these times. There’s a little over a month until Mother's Day, so make a few pages now and then you and mum can add to it together in the future. Simply pick up a pretty kit, such as Elizabeth Craft Designs Rose Gold Complete Journal Kit (462764) and get going!
For something truly special, you could try writing a heartfelt letter or poem, thanking your lovely mum for everything. That letter can then be decorated with beautiful embellishments, making it worth treasuring forever. Try Ultimate Crafts’ L'aquarelle Widespread Butterfly Die Set (400365), which will add a lovely touch to the border of your letter. Ah, we’re not crying, it’s just some dirt in the eye!
