My love in a box

Definitely, your mom will need this box, whether to put her accessories or any of her small personal stuff. All you need for this project is: a small box, plain paper, and painting colors; you can add some sentimental cards or notes inside the box, if so, you will need white plain paper and color pens or even glitter ones if you want.

You can also decorate the exterior with some nice family pictures if you want.

Family fingerprints chart

Wouldn’t it be nice to have the fingerprints of all the family members, even the babies and the pets, in one picture? Well, that’s mainly the idea of this gift. You need: a white plain cardboard or thick paper, photo frame of your choice, and liquid painting or finger paint. Use a pencil to draw any simple nice shape (heart, tree or sun), and use the family members fingerprints to fill the shape with the colors you want; start with your outline first, so your drawing would look neat. You can then put it into a photo frame to make it live longer and look nicer. You can also make each family member sign their name on their fingerprint, if you want.

Happy warm summer memories

We all have old vacation pictures; well it’s just about time to use them to create a touching gift. You need: sand, seashells or pearls (depending on your preference.) Choose a picture and you can add a black and white filter, before printing to add a vintage effect to the pictures.

Then you can cut any cartoon board you have into a photo frame and then use the glue and colored sand, seashells or pearls to decorate your photo frame. This way you have created a lovely gift and imprinted a memory.

The family tree

This is a very simple gift idea and will be so much fun for young kids. The idea of this gift is to gather the pictures of all the family members in the form of flowers in a pot. You need: pot, foam, brown color, sticks, cardboard (color according to your preference), glue, scissors, and personal 6*4 photos. You will cut the foam as one piece to fill the pot as clay, and then color the seen part with brown color. Add the number of sticks you want in the foam. Cut the cardboard into flower shapes and glue them to the sticks. Cut the personal photos in circles and glue them to the cardboard flowers. If you want, you can write a nice quote on the pot using glitter glue stick or a colorful marker.
