Mother’s Day Craft: Gift Booklets

mom-s-loveI am pleased to have Tanja Cilia back with our Mother’s Day craft for this week.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and please post if you try this project.

Mother’s Day Gift Booklets

What you need:

  • A4 paper, coloured or white
  • Glue
  • Transparent tape
  • Good scissors
  • Old cards
  • Old Magazines
  • Wrapping paper
  • Stickers, glitter, and rubber-stamps (optional)

Method:

  1. Go through magazines and find pictures, prayers, quotations, puzzles, that you like.
  2. “Cover” one sheet with wrapping paper on either side.
  3. Bind the edges with tape, and set aside.
  4. Fold each sheet, including the ‘cover’, in half.
  5. On each page, stick a picture and a recipe, or quote, or puzzle; the latter may overlap the former.
  6. When you are ready, attach sheets on top of one another down the centre to form booklet; attach cover last.
  7. Find letters from feature articles that spell out the message you want to convey, and use as necessary.
  8. If you want, you can decorate further with stickers, rubber-stamps and glitter.
  9. It is vital to include the occasion and the year on the front of the card, and optional to include the name of the recipient and the date.
