When my oldest son was in preschool I remember his teacher commenting that May is always a busy month. Being young, naïve, and the mother of only one child (whose birthday is in December), I thought to myself “what is she talking about?” Fast-forward almost 25 years and I’m definitely older, hopefully wiser, have two more children (both born in May!) and now know EXACTLY what she was talking about!
In a month full of birthdays, graduations, holidays, and various end-of-school-year activities, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and think you don’t have time to hand craft a Mother’s Day gift. But even though her special day is just around the corner, with your Silhouette (and some help from a few generous bloggers) you may be able to pull off a handmade gift for Mom after all.
Here are five ideas to get you started. As an added bonus, four of the five feature a free cut file (or two!). Any one of them is guaranteed to make Mom smile ♥.
1. DIY custom candle – Parental Perspective
2. Mother’s Day sign from kid’s handwriting – A girl and a glue gun
3. Plant Pot Decals – Fynes Designs
4. Card with hand-lettered design – Kimber Dawn & Co
5. “Great Moms Get Promoted to Grandmas” shirt – unoriginal Mom
I hope something here sparks your creativity and you can find time to make something special for the mother in your life. My own sweet mama has requested a little different type of gift this year, but rest assured I’ll be using my Cameo for part of it. Stay tuned for details…
Happy Mother’s Day!
