I saw this cute Butterfly card over at Our Daily Obsessions
(Photo from Our Daily Obsessions)
and thought it would be perfect for a gift for my Mom and Grandma from the girls.
(I'm a big fan of handprint projects... here were the girl's Valentines this year to my family.)
There was just one problem. I didn't want each girl to make one for each Grandma... that seemed excessive. I also didn't want one handprint from each on each one... that seemed lopsided.
So, I came up with a little tweak to the idea: Stack them up!
I put the oldest's handprint in back and the youngest's in front. I think this totally makes the butterfly look fun and colorful!
I reached into my iLoveToCreate stash and grabbed the Aleene's Stiffen-Quik for the ribbon. I love how it keeps the butterfly's antenna sticking straight up!!
The poem reads:
This isn't just a butterfly, as you can plainly see.
I made it with my hand, which is a part of me.
It comes with lots of love, especially to say
I hope you have a very
Happy Mother's Day
We attached the card with the poem to the butterfly with a mini clothespin and the Grandma's Loooved them!
I love this and I am totally going to steal it for my students to do next year! :o)ReplyDelete
