I really enjoy spending the time to make people gifts. Sometimes it takes longer than I think but I think in the end, it reflect that love I have for that person. Or makes them laugh if it’s pretty bad.
This Mother’s Day I wanted to make my mom a keepsake that could also hold some jewelry. I added the surprise of the box being able to hold a gift card because my mom totally deserves a day at the spa (in general) but also because she took care of me after the surgery. But getting to work on this craft while running after a toddler is not always easy.
This Mother’s Day, Pampers is celebrating moms and the precious moments of love with their little ones by giving the Pampers Gift of Love (#RegaloDeAmorPampers) to help families capture and cherish those loving moments with baby. Even when I’m running after her to change her Pampers.
I do most of my crafting with scrapbooking paper and my Silhouette. Although I have started to go into the realm of vinyl but that’s another post.
To start, I pick out my Scrapbooking paper. Michael’s always has a great variety of paper and usually it’s on sale! I wanted to pick a sort of vintage theme so I picked out the pieces above.
Then I opened the Silhouette program which runs really well on my new MacBook Pro and opened a template for Gift card. In the Silhouette store they have tons of ideas you can use to start from and then put your personal touches onto it.
After glueing the sides and the rose onto the box (the rose is a bunch of small pieces which were difficult to position). Btw does anyone have a favorite glue suggestion? I used a combination of craft glue stick, sticky tape, and scrapbookers glue which didn’t work well at all!
I had a ton of fun working on this project and while I worked on this, pumpkin worked on her own craft glue project for grandma. It was great sharing this together and I hope that we can continue to craft together as she gets older.
