How-to: Mother’s Day Gift Basket

Do you have a special Mom in your life that loves crafts?  I've put together a basket with some fun goodies for fellow crafting moms.

This small basket is packed full of fun things for planners, fellow crafters, or even teachers.  I packed it with mini clipboards, pencils, erasers, clothespins, a fun phrase stamp as well as handmade pocket cards, and a cute glassine bag filled with tassels, shaped paper clips, and tags.  And to finish it off – a small succulent plant – because it's cute!  This is a gift your fellow crafting moms are sure to love!  

How To:  Fill a basket with your favorite gift bag filler, set aside.  Adhere pleather bows to mini clipboards and add to basket.  Wrap a piece of torn fabric around pencils and add to basket along with a phrase stamp, erasers, and a small succulent plant.

Create handmade pocket cards, using a 6"x6" paper pad.  Use a sewing machine to stitch pockets together.  Add lace, glitter tape, stickers, die cuts, shaped paper clips and clothespins to embellish.

Fill a glassine bag with tags, paper clips and tassels.  Close shut using a paper clip.  Embellish front of bag with torn fabric, gold doily and pleather bow. Add all items to your basket and gift to a special Mom in your life.
