All The Reasons I Love You // DIY Gift Idea

Want a creative way to show someone all of the reasons you love them?

Write your top ten reasons and tie them to a helium balloons for a wonderfully romantic suprise.  We printed each reason on sticker paper and stuck to different styled scrapbooking paper, but it’s just as sweet (and easier!) to handwrite each reason as well.

DIY Silhouette Prints // Mother’s Day Gifts

DIY gifts are a really thoughtful and meaningful way to go for a creative Mother’s Day gift. A lot of DIY ideas really aren’t as difficult as they look. We tried our first stab at silhouette art and it was pretty simple!

If you don’t have any photoshop skills, try just printing out a profile shot of the family or pet on sticky paper. Print a few and a few sizes so you have some back-up. Then cut out carefully and stick to any paintable surface, pick a bright “pop-able” acrylic paint color, paint away and when dry just peel off the sticker and you are left with a lovely profile of your loved one! We used canvas and cork for coasters.

If you have a little bit of photoshoping skills, you can try a more original look by printing a black silhoutte, cutting out and framing with some pretty wrapping paper as the background.

Dig out Mom’s beautiful vintage tea cups and turn them into candles. Turn old into new… BUT, make sure to ask to use them before you start melting that wax!
