Mother’s Day is coming right up, which doesn’t give you much time to find the perfect gift to show the special moms in your life how much they mean to you. But just because the big day is right around the corner, it’s not too late to make a terrific, personalized gift with your digital scrapbooking supplies.
That’s the wonderful thing about digital scrapbooking – you have all the supplies you need at your fingertips, so putting them together into a gift is a snap. Here are some last-minute gift ideas your mother will love.
A quick and easy idea is to use your digital supplies and some of your favorite photos to make a set of personalized bookmarks. Add some inspirational sayings or words of love just for your mom. A great kit to get you going is Elisha Barnett’s Bookshelf Collection Biggie. Print your bookmarks on cardstock to make them more durable, then finish them by punching a hole at the top and tying a little ribbon or yarn through each one.
What mom doesn’t love a little special treatment? Create a set of custom coupons or vouchers especially for your mom using your digi-supplies. Offer your mom vouchers for special events like an ice cream date or a foot rub, or just offer to lend her a hand with coupons for folding laundry or washing the dishes. Our Pocket Life Kits are perfect to use for making your coupons because they are all the same size – so you just need to add some text, print, and cut. A great way to put it all together is to punch holes in the edge of each coupon, then tie them all together with some pretty baker’s twine.
Last fall, Scrap Girls ran a super tutorial on our blog on how to make your own pop-up card. Making a card that knocks your mom’s socks off is easier than you think! Add a little picture of your family as the thing that “pops out” – just imagine how fun would that be!
Every mom loves flowers and plants – and you can use your digital scrapbook kits to really jazz them up by creating a personalized hang tag or banner to put on a plant. There are oodles of cool kits in the Scrap Girls Boutique that would make a really great tag, but here are a couple that I thought would look great: ScrapSimple Word Art Templates: Retro Text and Shabby Blanc Pennant Embellishments. Add a little ribbon or string and you’ve turned your gift into something really special.
The great gift ideas you can come up are as endless as the digital scrapbook products in our Boutique. I hope you have fun coming up with your own fabulous gift for your mom. And if you completely run out of time, nothing says love like a Scrap Girls gift certificate, right?!
