Mother's Day 2012

Mother's Day Gift Idea

How about some beautiful modern bookmarks?

I made mine about 6 inches by 3 inches. Use heavy oak tag or card stock in Mom's favorite colors or a favorite theme. Cut smaller panels out of watercolor paper or thick card stock and let the kids draw items from nature like my flowers, bees or dragonfly. The panels can be mounted on patterned paper, wrapping paper. wallpaper, figure painted paper, or solid colored card stock. You can color the edges with marker or taper the corners. I added stickers with sayings to some of mine or the kids can write "Mom" or their name. I used white pre-cut flowers for the one on the far right and colored it with markers, adding a flat marble in the middle. The options are pretty much limitless. Don't forget to punch a hole at the top and add some matching ribbon. Add the date and some x's and o's and Mom will be thrilled to use it with her latest book or magazine choice.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers and mothering caregivers out there!
