Mother’s Day is just around the corner and if your mom is anything like mine, she much prefers a handmade gift or card over anything I could buy in a store. And you know I’m going to try to use my Silhouette any way I can! Many of the projects I’ve shared before on the blog can be modified to make a wonderful Mother’s Day gift. Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

There are many great word art files to choose from in the Silhouette Design Store like this one from Jennifer Wambach or you can add your own text.
Use photos of your kids, pretty clipart, or Print & Cut designs from the Silhouette Design Store.
Your choice of colors and design will make this a unique gift and creating a pattern for the nails is easy with the help of the Rhinestone Tool.
For the decal in this tutorial, I purchased an SVG of a mason jar and then added my own text. Perform a Google search using the term “mason jar SVG” and you’ll find plenty of options. To make the project even easier, use pre-designed word art.
It’s no secret that I LOVE Lori Whitlock’s card files but there are also several other options in the Silhouette Design Store. Start with a purchased file and then add your own creative touches.
Does your mom like bling? Add some rhinestones to a shirt or bag using either a purchased design or one of your own making.
If you own a Mint, make Mom a custom stamp that will remind her of you every time she uses it. Choose a design from the free ones that come with the Mint or create one of your own.
If Mom is a Silhouette user, check out these posts that list plenty of other gift ideas. And if YOU are the mom, share the posts with your own family as a suggestion of what you’d like to receive!
