Mother's Day Gifts...

I'm a big fan of giving homemade gifts for holidays and birthdays. This year for Mother's Day, I decided to dress up notepads for my wonderful Mom and Mother-in-Laws!

I got a package of 3 yellow notepads from the Dollar Store. Here's an example of the "before" and "after".

And you know I can't give a gift without a homemade card too. So I made matching cards to go with each of the notebooks.

Remember the strawberry jam from my earlier post?
I used Mod Podge and scrapbook paper to make the lids match each set of cards/notepads.

Although it may not be much, my gift for my Mom and Mother-in-Laws comes from the heart. Those are the best kind of gifts if you ask me!!

Happy Mother's Day!!

What a good idea... I should do this for Christmas for the ladies in my office. It looks like it would be easy, inexpensive and cute! Thanks for linking!
