Playing Tag - Eight Mothers Day Gifts to Make

Mother’s Day gifts don’t always need wrapping. Give decorative objects like this cup and saucer with just the addition of a personalised tag. Cut a tag shape out of pink card and use a punch to make a hole in the top for the ribbon. Stick three rosebuds on the front with a mini glue gun and simply tie it on the cup with pretty ribbon. Skill rating : Easy

Spell It Out - Eight Mothers Day Gifts to Make

A special handmade card will always show your mum how much you care. Choose a strongly coloured pink card, fold it in half and draw the letter ‘M’ on the front in pencil. Use a mini glue gun to stick small pink rosebuds along the pencil lines. Skill rating : Easy

Home-Spun Charm - Eight Mothers Day Gifts to Make

A homemade card is so much nicer than a shop-bought one. Try this if you’re handy with a sewing machine. Cut out a square of pink gingham fabric and draw the word ‘MUM’ in the centre in pencil. Next, embroider the letters using the zigzag stitch on a sewing machine (we used a mini one!). Stick the fabric on the centre of a card blank and add lace trimmings around the edges. Glue on paper flowers to finish it off nicely. Skill rating : Easy

In The Frame - Eight Mothers Day Gifts to Make

Transforming a plain frame is easy and this is bound to be treasured forever! Using a mini glue gun, stick some ready-made flowers around the edge of the frame. Then, use paper and a lace-effect punch or lace trim to create a decorative edging. Glue in place. Spell out the words in self-adhesive letters and add an extra flower in the middle. Finish with ribbon for hanging. And why not use paper flowers to make a matching gift tag? Skill rating : Easy

Sealed With Love - Eight Mothers Day Gifts to Make

Afternoon tea will be extra-special with this little addition to the cup. Roll out red FIMO 2 mm thick and cut a heart shape with a cookie cutter. Make two holes in the middle and put in the oven (follow pack instructions). Cut a 5cm square of card and punch a hole in one corner. Stitch the heart to the card and tie to the cup with ribbon. Skill rating : Easy

Treasure Box - Eight Mothers Day Gifts to Make

A plain wooden box can easily be customised to make a lovely keepsake. Apply one or two coats of paint and leave to dry. Next, stick plastic mosaics on the top of the box – we chose toning colours. Paint a small FIMO heart and leave to dry before sticking it on the box. Use a 3D fabric pen to write the letter ‘M’ on the heart in tiny dots. Skill rating : Easy

A Heart-Felt Message - Eight Mothers Day Gifts to Make

This simple but effective card is easy to make. Roll out red FIMO 2 mm thick and cut out three heart shapes using a cookie cutter. Make two holes in the middle of each heart and put them in the oven (follow the pack instructions). Leave to cool completely before stitching on to the middle of the card using contrasting thread. Sew a border to frame the hearts. Skill rating : Easy
