My mom's birthday is quickly approaching and I want to do something creative but living in another state means I have to get busy now. I had the idea of giving her a bunch of gift cards but in a unique way.
I found many great ideas but thought that her initial would be a great way to go.
One Stop Party Ideas- has great gift ideas for the more mature birthday guy or girl!
Here's my version of this unique gift!
Giant wooden letter-Hobby Lobby (9.99)
Your color choice paint- my mom likes red
Clothes pins (found these during the after Christmas sale at Target for $.50)
Any embellishments you want to add to decorate your letter
Various gift cards
My first step was to paint the edges with a dark red.
Once that dried I painted the whole "A" a lighter red.
While I let the red paint dry I painted some smaller wooden letters to add to the "A" black.
I used a glue gun to glue the letters down. After gluing down the letter that spell LOVE YOU and the flower to the wooden letter, I glued the clothes pins where I wanted them to go.
All that was left to add was some of her favorite gift cards. I hope that she loves this gift as much as I loved working on it for her.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMY!!!
