Guaranteed to beat some generic card that you grab last-minute from the drug store, Mother’s Day Printables are a fun way to help the Moms in your life feel loved on their special day. To help celebrate each mom’s unique spirit, I created a simple coloring page with question prompts for kids. Convenient and unique, moms will treasure this thoughtful questionnaire for years to come!
Homemade gifts are the sweetest and it doesn’t get much more adorable than children’s artwork – so this year for Mother’s Day, I worked with my sister in-laws to have each of the 8 grandchildren create a special piece for their Nana.
Each drawing/painting was created in a square format. I then took a photo of each masterpiece (Note: For best results, shoot outside in full sunlight), and used Diptic to group the photos into two sets of four with equal dimensions. This app also makes it super easy to create a fun colorful border, complimenting the kids’ artwork.
After combining the artwork into two collages, I printed each as a MIRROR IMAGE onto Fabric Transfer Sheets, then ironed them onto each side of a Canvas Tote Bag. (I stress “mirror image” because, regardless that it’s clearly on the instructions, I have forgotten this step on numerous occasions – trust me, you’ll want to save yourself the frustration)
Voila! Straight from a child’s heart and imagination… A one-of-a-kind, reusable tote, made especially for Nana. 🙂
“Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.”
To all the amazing moms out there – you are loved and appreciated today and every day… Happy Mother’s Day!!
