Today we have Erin Sutch from Crafts & Sutch as our guest poster!
I am super excited to spend some time with you and show you a simple Mother’s Day craft that was a big hit with the grandmas last year!
You do not need many supplies, and it is as cute as can be when complete.
Just grab the free printable below and print pictures you know mom will love.
AND you can make new versions every few years with new photos!
3″ wooden cube (I got mine at Michael’s)
5 images that have been sized to 2.5″ square and printed using a laser printer or photo copied
Mom/Mimi/Mema/Nana printable (see further down the post)
Distress ink (optional)
Using the foam brush, paint the edges of the wooden cubes.
When the paint is dry, slather on a layer of Mod Podge, put the image on top, then another layer of Mod Podge.
Be sure to smooth out any bubbles.
It’s best if your images have been printed with a laser printer or have been photo copied so the image does not bleed when you cover it with the Mod Podge.
We have a small family, so it wasn’t too hard to manage.
However, if your family is big, you might only do pics of the grandkids.
(The original printable file from Erin at Crafts & Sutch is no longer available.
I have made a similar version that can be downloaded.)
If your kiddo calls his/her grandmother something else, you can create your own printable using a word processing program (I created mine using PowerPoint).
Michele, thank you so much for letting me hang out here for the day!
I’ve had a wonderful time and I’ll hope you’ll pop over to Crafts & Sutch sometime to say hi!
>> See where I party! <<
