Happy Frugal Mother's Day!

Since I've already sent our little Mother's Day gifts to the grand and great grandmothers...I'll share how it was done...of course very frugally...but full of love...


I forgot to take a picture...but Emma laboriously and excitedly painted two cereal boxes for me. She hasn't really figured out that mixing all the colors makes them all army green and gray...but oh well! She's cute!

I traced and cut out a flower pattern...

Glued a magnet on one side...

Emma helped select buttons for the other side...the flowers bellybuttons...hehehe!

Then I used those watercolor cards I made from her many many many paintings...

...to create a cute card! We put another magnet inside to hold them to each other...

and sent them on their merry way! Happy Mother's Day!!!
