I have to share these amazing tutorials I’ve come across in the past few days.  They’ve been inspiring me to go handmade for mother’s day!  Yes, we still have time – Mother’s Day is on Sunday.  That leaves us 2 days, 15 hours, and 1 minute until the big day!  So here are some easy-to-make treasures that your mom would love – tutorials and all!

  • I’m so excited with what we made this year for all the Grandmas. I can’t post it on my blog because my Mom reads it so I’ve been dying to share!

    I’ve named it “We Love you because…” (I’m such a dork, lol)

    We made four different sized paper flowers (similar to the roses) 8 for each bouquet. Then I cut out the kids hand shapes on colored paper after tracing. We wrote reasons they love their Grandmas on each hand and then folded down two middle fingers to make the ASL sign for “I Love You” Then we glued a paper flower to the folded down fingers (smaller flowers for the smaller hands).

    We attached each flower to a skewer (that we had in the kitchen) and arranged them in a vase (from the dollar store!) filled with Hershey “hugs and kisses.” We printed out a poem and placed it inside the vase facing out saying something along the lines of “we don’t always tell you how much we love you so if you ever wonder or have a rough day you can read why we love you and enjoy hugs and kisses from us to you”

    These turned out SO cute! They were inexpensive, fun and sweet.
