How to make the CUTEST Mother's day gift ever....

What mother or grandmother wouldn't love to get something this precious? A cute 3D photo of their favorite grandchild...The best part is that it is inexpensive AND easy to do! Wanna know how?
First take some photo's of your kids holding something like they would a flower-like a pencil or crayon...nothing too large. I gave Moses one of my button flowers and told him to smell it (one of the few things he will do on command---the boy will smell anything). I couldn't believe how lucky I was to get this face!! If you have an older child you can get them to show you the "flower" this makes a cute photo too...keep clicking until you get one that will work...
Then I took an exacto knife and cut slits along the top edge of his hand (where it looks like the flower going into his hand) and again at the bottom. Then you just slip an artificial flower into the slits...this photo is a 4 by 6 so I used a small flower but you can use any flower you want...especially if you do an 8 by 10. When you put the photo into the frame take the glass out and put it in behind the photo or if you are mailing it, use cardboard to provide support instead of glass. Ta da!!! Cuteness you can do!! Make sure you let me know if you do this project...I wanna see!!! :) Beautiful spring day here today...lovely as lovely can be! Have a beautiful day you lovely readers!
Pin It!

ok..Im not going to do this exact thing HOWEVER you got me to thinking. I teach and I was going to just take the kids outside, do a pic and put it in a frame they made for mom and walla....HOWEVER, I like the idea of having them either smell a flower OR act like they are presenting the flower!!! How cute would that be?? I like the other idea but waaaaaay too much work times the amount of kiddos I have..lol
