Mothers’ Day Gift

We all want to go the extra mile for our moms.  Here is a great Mothers’ Day gift you can personalize specifically for your mom. Decorate this box in your mom’s favorite color and style and fill it with her favorite treat.

Start with a blank craft box.  Boxes are available at most craft stores in a variety of shapes.

Pick a few different scrap book papers to cover it with.  Cut the paper to the appropriate shape and adhere it with Mod Podge (also available at craft stores).

Adhere a ribbon around the brim and adorn it with anything else your mom may like. Then fill it with something she’d love.  Here, I made my mom her favorite treat of hand-dipped, chocolate-covered cherries and put them in mini-cupcake liners.

Make your mom her favorite treat, or purchase a treat she loves. You can also fill it with pictures of her family (specifically grandkids), cosmetics, lotions, jewelry or whatever she would like.

Happy Mothers’ Day!

    Thanks for giving me an idea for Mother’s day. I am thinking I’ll fill mine with hand-dipped chocolate covered cherries in mini-cupcake liners. Just kidding. It’s beautiful and I’m very impressed you found time to make it.

    See you soon!
