Mother's Day Issue, 2010

Are you feeling crafty for the upcoming holidays?

NEW for Mother's Day 2010

Felt Photo Album:

Are you giving mom photos for Mother’s Day and need some photo album ideas? Then try this album, covered with beautiful felt flowers. This photo album craft idea uses easy embroidery stitches and inexpensive supplies.

Bird Stamp Card:

This is one of our favorite homemade Mothers Day cards! The cute bird stamp we used was from the Birds Galore stamp set by Inkadinkado, but you could also consider using a rubber stamp of a flower, butterfly or any other stamp you think your mom might like.

Clay Candle Holder:

One of our most beautiful polymer clay tutorials is this lily of the valley flower which we molded onto a votive glass candle holder. This votive glass candle holder would make a lovely homemade gift for Mother’s Day. Overall, this is a pretty quick and easy craft project to do.

We are still working on more projects for Mother's Day, so keep checking in from time to time.

And don't forget to leave a comment on your favorite project. We love to hear what you have to say!
