We are thrilled to have Lynn Lilly from Craft Box Girls with us today sharing her customized and thoughtful Mother’s Day gift idea.

Thoughtful Mother's Day Gift

Treat mom to a customized and thoughtful gift for Mother’s Day. Whether your mom loves to cook or is a business women on the go we have the perfect gift to make her feel special!  We paired the Grocery Custom Notepad with a DIY Recipe Book for the mom who loves to cook. For the working mom on the go we paired the Cashmere Pink Professional Business Cards with a DIY burlap business card holder.

Craft Box Girls blogger, Chan Vu created a DIY recipe card book is the perfect for your mom to keep her classic recipes or you can fill the pages with recipes you want to cook together. We couldn’t resist pairing the recipe book with the custom Grocery notepad so she can stay organized and be efficient when grocery shopping.

Thoughtful Mother's Day Gift

Materials:

  • One Gift bag
  • Pre-printed recipe cards (print at home or purchase at a craft store)
  • Glue gun with one glue stick
  • Hole puncher
  • Small ring binders
  • Scissors or paper cutter
  • One card stock

Directions:

  1. Cut the bag along the folded sides. You want to save the front as your cover.
  2. Cut the card stock (I used a black card stock) to 4 1/2 X 6 1/2.
  3. Wrap the gift bag around the trimmed card stock. This adds thickness to the cover.
  4. Secure it with glue on the surface and glue gun in the corners and edge.
  5. Align the cover and recipe cards. Punch holes using the hole puncher.
  6. Loop the covers and cards together using the rings. You are done!

Is your mom a business women trying to network and always carrying business cards? Having memorable and beautifully designed business cards is super important. The Cashmere Pink Professional Cards have the perfect professional touch and look great in a handmade burlap business card holder.

DIY Crafty Business Card Holder

Materials:

  • 8 inch x 6.5 inch piece of burlap
  • 8 inch piece of lace or ribbon
  • Hot Glue

Directions:

  1. Fold the piece of burlap in half to make a 6.5 inch x 4 inch.
  2. Cut a diagonal line across the front side starting half way up the open side and ending at the top left corner.
  3. Hot glue the bottom and side edges.
  4. Secure ribbon or lace with hot glue! And you are all done!

We are thrilled to have Lindsay from See Mom Click with us today sharing her fun and unique graduation signature board idea that you can craft for your graduation announcements display.

Graduation Party Signature Board DIY

Instead of keeping your graduation announcement in a scrapbook, rarely to be seen, preserve it and display it with this really easy Graduation Signature Board craft. It serves as both a gorgeous keepsake and a beautiful table decoration for your graduation party.

Graduation Party Signature Board DIY

You’ll need few supplies to get started. You can find all of these in a craft store and they’re very inexpensive: An 11”x14” frame; a photo mat made to fit an 11”x14” frame and 8”x10” photo; cardstock that matches your graduation card (two coordinating pieces – we used black and a sparkly copper on this project); tape; scissors or a paper cutter.

Graduation Party Signature Board DIY

Use the cardstock you chose as your background color and trim it down to fit just behind the photo mat. Most cardstock is 12”x12” so you’ll need to cut about 1.5” off one side and it should fit. Tape all four sides to the back of the photo mat.

Graduation Party Signature Board DIY

Use the second piece of cardstock to frame your graduation card. Feel free to eyeball this. You just want to leave an even border all the way around the photo card and leave space so that your framing color of cardstock (that’s the glittery copper in the photo above) shows through all the way around.

Graduation Party Signature Board DIY

Tape the graduation card with cardstock behind it onto the larger piece of cardstock in the photo mat, centering it before adhering it. You may need to use glue to get it to really stick depending on the texture of your paper.

Graduation Party Signature Board DIY

Keep a pen with your graduation signature board so family, friends, and party guests can sign it and wish the graduate well! You can find gel and metallic pens of all colors in a craft store. Just make sure that your color contrasts with the photo mat you chose so the words show up well.

Graduation Party Signature Board DIY

Use a plate stand to display your signature board on a table during your party. Guests are sure to see it and sign it if you put it near the front door or near the food! When the party is over and graduation is in the rear-view mirror, you’ll have a gorgeous keepsake. Put the glass back in the frame, hang it on your wall, and go rule the world, graduate!
