Turn your Children’s Artwork into gifts

This weekend we worked on some gifts for the grandparents.  In April, Lilly invited my Mom and I to her K.I.S.S. Day (Kids Invite Someone Special) to school.   She made us this really cute card but it was one card for both my Mom and I, so I decided to turn it into a gift for my Mom.  I keep seeing popping up in my pinterest stream – turn your kids artwork into  stuffed animal or turn your kids artwork into a tea towel.  So for a gift from Lilly she created several tea towels for the grandparents.   Here’s where I saw the idea for the tea towels – Heather over at Setting for Four has some really cute examples – check it out here

 

This is the towel I created from the card Lilly made for K.I.S.S. Day

Step 1:  Draw your picture on paper and then insert under the towel and trace your picture.  I let her make a few of her own and she wanted to use the color markers.

towel she made for my Mom – a little bit of everything

 

Special Instructions – I washed my towels first and ironed them before we started tracing the pictures onto the towels.  After, she traced and colored her drawings on the towels – I washed and ironed the towels again.  This was just make sure everything was set before we wrapped up the towels. 

I hope everyone enjoyed their Mother’s Day and was able to spend the day with the people that matter most!  We had a busy day and I was treated to breakfast and went to dinner …. finished some chores ( a Mother’s job is never done)  hehe! 

 

Happy Mother’s Day!

  3. Annie, I have been suffering from acid reflux disease for many years
    and that i in no way recognized it was because of
    the food items I ate! I used the phentramin for any couple
    of months and I'm not really certain just how much it aided because I had to work with willpower too! But I switched from 3 southern meals per day to 5-6 small um... california foods per day ~haha~ and i think my metabolism is healthier!
