My blog reader friend Suzanne wanted some ideas for Mother's Day. Here's what i'm doing for all my favorite mothers. I have something else planned for my Mom but I know lots of good mothers out there and now I have gifts for them. While I was at Target I spied these cool looking Boxes of Soap. They were in the regular soap aisle, they were 2.88 for a 2 pack. They came in several scents, I picked vanilla cherry blossom. Came home pulled out the scrap box. Cut some paper 8 1/2x 3 1/4, wrapped it around the soap box and attached it with double sided tape. Then I grabbed some ribbon and buttons and stuck them on. Punched out a few tags from the reverse side of the pattern paper I used and stamped it Happy Mothers Day. If you don't have a stamp, just print something on your computer, if you don't have a computer then i'm sure you have beautiful hand writing. Well I guess if you didn't have a computer you wouldn't be reading this, you get what I mean... use anything you have. And if you're doing this with kids like Suzanne wants to, i'd show them how to wrap the paper around and then throw a bunch of stuff (anything you have) out on the table and let them go for it! Oh, how about cutting plain paper, let them draw/color on it and then wrap it around the soap. The possibilities are endless. Here's mine... and I made a quick card from scraps too!
I'll be back tomorrow with more bloggin suggestions. Not sure which one i'll pick yet!
My Newsletter is going to be late, but it's coming soon. Since i'm not feeling all that great I slacked off a little this weekend! You know life stuff... Smiles to you!
