Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers and pet mothers!  It's a day to pamper yourself and relax.  I hope your significant others take good care of you all day - cooking and cleaning for you (haha, dream on)...

One of my customer's daughters contacted me and wanted to give her mom a gift certificate.  Here's what I made for her.

It's the exploding box we made a while back in card class.  It's a little box made from patterned paper that pulls open.  There's a "seat belt" that slips over the entire thing and keeps it shut.  I used the Sophia papers (retired, but I still love them), decorated the "seat belt" with some Cricut flowers (made from White Daisy and Cotton Candy), sponged them and put a pearl in the center. The "box" has a space for a sentiment or gift certificate inside.  It was fun to make!  I hope she likes it.

Don't forget about the Dotty For You special!  Still going strong through May.  Place a $35 order from the Spring/Summer Idea Book and get the Dotty For You paper pack (24 sheets of coordinated card stock) for just $5!!

Sophia Paper Pack
