I’m so honored to have been chosen to participate in the Mother’s Day Campaign, sponsored by Martha Stewart Crafts and PLAID. They sent me a HUGE box chock-full of lovely crafting items to create a unique Mother’s Day craft tutorial!
So I made an unboxing video, complete with sound effects supplied by Lil Tot and with Final Cut Pro dropping frames every step of the way due to my slow-as-molasses computer.
The tutorial/s will be posting April 25, so stay tuned!:-D
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, probably the biggest question on everyone’s mind is what to get for the mother in their lives. DIY a lovely gift for a Mom of any age – using fabric and glass, two of the best materials known to the modern gal. Here’s an internet roundup of some great projects to create flowers that last forever, and beautiful jars to display them in or use as knicknacks around the house:
You can also buy small fabric gifts for Mom (decorative pouches, stockings, scarves, underwear * o * …) and roll them up tightly to make your own rolled rose bouquet, adding straws, wrapped wire, or takeout chopsticks for stems. (Taking a leaf from Hanky Panky, seen above.) Now as to what to put your lovely flowers in…
To take a break from the “must give flowers for Mother’s Day” mantra…what not think a little out of the jar box? If Mason jars are on your mind, maybe Mom would love this handcrafted terrarium that Craftzine can help you with?
The Home-Made Sun Jar from Instructables user cre8tor is another fabulous use of the jarred variety.
Or even a jar of a homemade cookie mix, granola, or hot cocoa might work well for a mother with a sweet tooth. (Guilty!) See RazzleDazzleRecipes for a ton of great cookie-mix-in-a-jar recipes.
And isn’t this ingenious?
