I used the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper to create a lining for the inside of the box. The sentiment on the front is from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set and fits well for all the mothers that I know. Mothers are indeed incredible! They balance so much. In my opinion, Mother’s Day is the perfect time to encourage them to take some time for themselves and pamper themselves a bit! What better way than a cup of tea and new chapstick in a yummy flavor! Remember, you can spoil any mother in your life- friends that are mothers, the bus driver, your mail carrier, and neighbors! The possibilities are endless.
To make the lining, cut your patterned paper to 4 1/2″ x 5 3/4″ and score the short side at 3/4″ and 3 3/4″. Then turn your paper and score the long side at 2 1/2″ and 3 1/4″. Fold on all the score lines and burnish with your bone folder. Then just snip off the two little rectangles as shown in the photo below.
I hope you will hop along to see the wonderful ideas that the other talented crafters created in honor of Mothers. You are sure to be inspired.
