Mother’s Day is almost here, but there’s still time to make up a handmade little something.
(There is. There’s time. You can do it!) (And thus ends the pep talk portion of our blog post.)
Here are a couple of simple ideas for a lovely made-by-you gift package.
You will need: felt, ribbon, wrapping (box, bag, or other packaging).
1. Cut out flower shapes. I cut two of each shape, one larger and one smaller. (You can do a quick image search for clip art to use as a stencil, or just cut your own.)
2. Cut two slits in each flower, a little wider than your ribbon.
3. String the ribbon through the bigger flower, then the smaller one.
4. Thread the ribbon back through the smaller flower, then the bigger one.
Tie around your box, or knot the ends of the ribbon to dangle the flowers from a bag or package.
But what’s inside the gift wrap?
A simple DIY gift? But of course.
An energizing grapefruit and mint sugar scrub for her mornings, and a relaxing lavender and chamomile linen spray for winding down in the evening.
And one last treat for you: Labels for your scrub and spray (plus blank ones, for writing your own messages). Click here to download a sheet of labels that can be printed on sticker paper, or printed on regular paper then hole-punched and tied on.
Gift, wrap, label. You’re ready to go!
Because I am pretty sure it’s traditional to start Mother’s Day with a “Look, Mom, I made it myself!” Even if the last time you said that was 1987.
