In a little over a week, we'll be celebrating the favorite moms
and grandmoms in our lives (and hopefully, if you're a mom, you'll
be celebrated too!). When I saw a recent pin my friend, Melissa,
had finished, I knew I had to have her crafty gift featured
For Mother's Day, Melissa created this adorable picture holder
for her mom based on the original pin found here. Her simple and easy to follow directions
can be found below:
When planning a project, always keep an eye out for coupons for
both of these craft stores. This saves some money and makes your
project even more "priceless."
Thanks for sharing, Melissa!
I love this project because you can customize everything about
it. Whether you decide to make this for Mother's Day, as a gift for
a friend, or as personalized home décor, you can change the colors
to match and create a new saying to go with it. You also have the
freedom to use odds and ends that you already have on hand to make
this piece special (buttons, strings, ribbons, scrapbook paper).
Another person asked how to incorporate many grandkids on one board
and Melissa had a great suggestion to have a clip be for each
family and create photo booth strips. Another option may be to
designate a strip per family and hang decorative ribbon down,
affixing pictures that way. The possibilities are endless!
