Classic Mother’s Day DIY Gifts

mom-diy-main

It’s time to think about making a gift for the lady who made you who you are today!

We used our new Classic Prints to DIY three classic Mother’s Day Gifts.

Flowers, cards and macaroni art – the ol’ standbys … with a bit of a twist.



A Bouquet Made of Memories

We used this tutorial from Photojojo, to make photo flowers.

Our classic prints are a bit thick for all that folding, so we made a stencil to cut out the flow shapes, but beyond that we just followed the simple steps.


A Personal Postcard

This is the simplest DIY of all time. But it’s still guaranteed to put a big smile on Momma’s face.

Just flip over a Classic print, add a lovey message or drawing, an address and a stamp. Ta-da!

Classy Macaroni Art

We honest to goodness wrote “macaroni art, but classy” in our blog post plan, and here’s what we came up with … a frame and a simple print stand.

Recycle the board that comes as part of the Classic Print packaging! Glue on macaroni, then cover your creation in a couple layers of matte acrylic paint.

We used two rows of wagon wheel pasta for the stand, and slipped the print in between.

We just love the monochrome look! It lets your photo be the star of the show.


Mother’s Day is coming up quick! Order your 4×6” or 5×7” Classic Prints and get to DIYin’.
