I really wanted to do something special for my mom this mother’s day (besides providing a grandchild, ahem;). I wish I could be with her right now but since I can’t and I may be preoccupied with labor right around the big day I thought I’d send her a card that will give her a little bit of love each day.
First, I used my trusty heart punch (as demonstrated in this project) to punch out shapes in some red construction paper.
I used double-sided tape to attach white paper behind the hearts. Then, I wrote a little message under each of the hearts so she can open one each day.
Finally, I used washi tape to secure the hearts back in place. I have had a love affair with washi tape since I lived in Japan— my only regret is not buying more of it at the 100 yen store;) Washi tape is basically paper masking tape and can be peeled off and re-attached quite easily.
She has already gotten the package so I thought I’d post it here in case it sparks some mother’s day inspiration for you!
