Mother's Day Activity



My friend asked me to help her come up with an idea for the girls in our ward at church to do for Mother's Day Activity. I made two of each of these books you see pictured.

Here's what I came up with. I made these books using my Cricut Expression. I used the Cricut Design Studio to weld together the letters from 'Opposites Attract' and the rectangles from 'George and Basic Shapes'. Then I cut them out in chipboard, spray painted them, added the letters cut out in cute paper, and finally bound it with my Bind-It-All.

I gave the girls a bunch of embellishments, ribbon, flowers, brads, etc. And they decorated the books and put pictures of themselves in them, and wrote nice notes for their moms. I didn't get to see the books when they were done but I heard that they were really cute and the girls had a great time decorating them.
