Mother’s Day isn’t only about celebrating your own momma. It can also be about celebrating all the ladies in your life that work hard to raise good kiddos. Friends. Aunts. Teachers. Grandmas. Why not tell these folks how amazing they are? After all, it is important for us to encourage and lift each other. So I decided to come up with a fun little treat that I could give to several ladies in my life that I love and respect. Just to remind them what awesome mommas they are.
In the video I show how to take a simple sandwich bag and transform it into a bag perfect to hold a muffin or cupcake. (You could also purchase baggies that are intended for this purpose at Target, etc. but I didn’t have any on hand.) So easy to do!
The toppers are just as simple. Just download and print THIS free download.
All you have to do is score and cut and you are good to go! I used a fun die from Simon Says Stamp to create the flowers. However, you could easily create your own with any embellishments you may have. You could even create your own flowers from circle punches. (Just cut slits in along the edge of a punched circle for a funky flower. For the leaves, just punch a circle then put the circle back in the punch but offset… creating a leaf shape.)
THIS download could also be used to create mini cards or sentiments for regular cards. You could also use the basic design for occasions throughout the year… just stamp any sentiment.
If you haven’t been to Melanie’s blog, I highly recommend it! She has many tasty recipes. Be sure to head HERE for the Strawberry Banana Muffin recipe she created for this collaboration.
