So my previous post may have led you to believe that I am all about the presents, but I am bringing you this post to prove that the best things in life are free. In fact I think one of my mom's favourite gifts was the year I was uni when I secretly came home really late on the Saturday night and left a note on the doorstep telling her to check in my room. And there I was still in bed. Probably still asleep. We were able to go to church together and then I made her my specialty risotto and she loved this more than anything. Or so she said!
So I had a pile of Project Life Blush cards (which are currently 25% off at Hobby Craft, all you UK crafters), some stamps, an ink pad, wood veneers and washi tape and I started creating.
On each card I stamped one of the things that I love about her and then embellished it. Some of them I decorated with photos of her grandson and also me when I was younger.
I then made a hole in the corner of each card with a hole punch (mine was a mini star punch) and tied them together with bakers twine to make a cute little booklet.
This would be an ideal project to make with younger family members.
In fact I am making it with some teenage girls on Thursday night.
Along with some cupcakes or cookies - I haven't decided yet!
Anyone have a good recipe?
