Directions: Start with a red polka dot bag. Fold each bottom corner back, making a bottom point. Tape in place. Fold the top edge down, creasing about 1/3 of the way from the top. Fold the perforated edge under, doubling up the top fold. Fold each top corner back, meeting up with the bottom of the fold. Make a small slit in the top center of the bag, stopping after you’ve cut through all of the folded portion. Fold the center flaps away from the slit, making a heart shape. Unfold and fill with treats. Tape the top folds in place and you’re finished with your heart shaped favor bags!

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! If you’re planning a special brunch or dinner, these small canvas place cards are a fabulous way to dress up the table. They’re not only beautiful as a place setting, but are also a wonderful keepsake from the day. You can get the kids involved by letting them make their own. Wouldn’t it be adorable to have a tiny canvas, colored by your child, from each Mother’s Day?

You will need: template printable, 3×3 inch canvas, miniature canvas easels, permanent markers, pencil

Directions: First, print and cut out your template square. On the back of the template, rub the pencil led over the back of the template, covering up the back of the design. Next, place the template square, face up and pencil lead down, onto a 3×3 inch canvas. Take a pen or pencil and trace over your design on the template. The pencil lead on the back of the paper should transfer onto the canvas. Once you have finished tracing over all of the design, discard the template. You should be left with a light outline of your design on the canvas. Finally, use permanent markers to color in the design!

These lovely little diy crepe paper flowers are a sweet way to dress up any Mother’s Day gathering–from a simple breakfast in bed to an elaborate brunch. Or have your kids give grandma a special corsage that won’t wilt throughout the day. These flowers can be made in any color of crepe paper streamers.

You will need: crepe paper streamers (in the colors of your choice), floral wire, floral tape

Directions: Start by taking the end of the crepe paper streamer. Twist the crepe paper around the end, slightly gathering it as you go. If, at first, you don’t like how it looks you can always start over. Play around with it until you’ve got just the fullness you like. Keep on gathering until your flower is the size you want. You can make a variety of sizes (like I did) to have a more natural look. Cut the end of the crepe paper. Fold the top corner of the end down to the bottom of the flower to create a triangle at the end of the flower. Roll the triangle at the bottom of the flower to complete your flower. Wrap the end with floral tape. Tape the flower onto a piece of floral wire.
