I made note cards out of some of my children’s art work for the grandmothers and aunts at Christmas. They were very well received, so I am going to be making some for my husband’s mother for Mother’s Day.
The paintings were too large for my scanner, so I took them to Office Depot to be scanned and printed. All of the sets of cards were completed in less than an hour. I bought a box of 100 envelopes for $9.95 at Christmas time and had enough leftover to make several more set of gift cards. Each card cost .67, so a set of 8 note cards cost $6.16 before tax. A bargain for a custom, semi-handmade gift!
If your mother has everything she needs and is at a point in her life where she prefers to receive consumable items, rummage through your children’s artwork and see if you have something that could be made into a set of note cards.
I will also be sending my Mother-In-Law a bouquet of Alstroemerias from ProFlowers.com. We both enjoy these beautiful, long-lasting flowers. However, I am still trying to decide what to do for my mother, so am very interested in hearing about your Mother’s Day Ideas! What are you doing for your mom for Mother’s Day?
