Mother's Day is a time to celebrate the women who've impacted our world, the mothers, grandmas, aunts, friends, and mentors. One way I share a special connection with all the creative women in my life is by incorporating a handmade touch in all my gift-giving.
With a little help from American Greetings, this Mother's Day I'm making tissue paper letters to use throughout my holiday decorating and gifting. It's one more way to celebrate Mom and personalize her gift.
Tissue Paper Letters
- American Greetings tissue paper
- decoupage medium
- small wooden crafting letters
- crafting heart
- food picks
- Not Pictured: hot glue gun and sponge paint brushes
First, I went through the packages of letters and picked out the ones I needed. Then I cut up the pieces of tissue paper into smaller pieces and set up a decoupage station.
Next, I followed the instructions on the decoupage medium and covered the letters and heart with the tissue paper pieces.
Finally, after the letters dried I hot glued them to the dowels, food picks, and even a card envelope.
How to Use
Now the fun stuff, how to use our crafty little letters in our gift giving and decorating!
Flowers are a classic Mother's Day gift and the perfect companion to a heartfelt card. To make this gift different we hot glued the letters to our envelope and then glued it to the front of our bouquet.
TIP: Make your bouquet special by getting rid of the original packaging and re-wrapping the blooms in a few layers of tissue paper. It's an easy way to make a gift extra special!
Do you host a Mother's Day brunch? Attach your message to food picks and use them to decorate cakes, cupcakes, or even appetizers.
This is my favorite project using these little letters! It's so easy to tuck a message pick into a gift bag, so everyone knows who it is!
