Mothers Day Gifts



WOW have I been busy!! I decided this year that I would make all my gifts. It definetly was a blast, but a lot of work. The first thing I started on was the coaster pen holders. You can see a larger picture of one in another post below. Second, I started on the CD Calenders. I got the idea from my upline. She gave them as gifts a while back. Leave me a comment if you want the format for the calenders. (I dont have it on me right now). Next, I covered note pads with dp and then added a punch of ribbon. Stamped "notes" in various SU! Alpha Stamps. Then, I stamped the candles. This was my first time stamping on candles and it was a lot of fun. I found the tutorial here. It was very easy. Thanks Jenni for the great tutorial!!! Lastly, I put together the cork board. My dear stalker friend Andria had made one and I just LOVED the idea.

I hope all you moms had a wonderful Mother's Day!!:)
