chiffon roses from calamity kim

or how about some pretty chiffon roses? with a little hot glue, they could be turned into a brooch or an embellished head band. these pretties come from calamity kim.

rick rac rings from maize hutton

or how about some rick rac rings? these cute rosettes rings were made by maize hutton. how cute! you can get adjustable ring bases at a craft store, making these easy last minute crafts. not that you waited until the last minute…

shoes mark the passage of time from real simple

i wish i still had all my baby shoes, because i would make this shadow box! the idea comes from real simple as a way to re-use kid’s items, but i think this would make a really sweet mother’s day gift.

mmmm.....chocolate.....from cafe fernando

want to make something super sweet for mom? how about this 2 ingredient chocolate mousse (chocolate and water) that whips up in about 5 minutes. i know, right? it’s mother’s day everyday.

cute little polaroid magnets from ambrosia girl

and how about these adorable teeny polaroid magnets? dreamt up by ambrosia girl, made by you of family photos. now mom will have something to hold up all that art work.

family tree photo card from martha stewart

top it all off with a special card (or let this card be the gift). i mean, i hope you and your mom have established that anything you make is going to be fabulous and treasured, so take these ideas and run with them. mom will love them. then share pictures of what you made!
