Mother's Day Idea #1...


Well I'm finally back to blogging thank you to my loyal 10 readers who stuck it out with me. The show went really well and all my orders are almost filled.. yay! Husband is in the middle of his last week of law school finals... double yay! And I have a house to pack for our big move across the country to Utah... But enough about me let's get to the real reason you're here- a craft.

Mother's Day is coming up and if you're like me you're scratching your head trying to think of something new to give to the woman who gave life to you- no pressure right? Well for the next week I will showcase easy, cheap, and meaningful presents that you can give to that sweet lady.


Today's idea is a dvd of your family throughout the past year or an event or whatever. But the tutorial is not about how to make the dvd, it's how to makeover the dvd case.

First find a case. Then pull out the cover of the case and trace on to the paper of your choice (this dvd is actually for an outgoing missionary). Cut out paper.

Yeah, we own Shrek- don't judge.


I inked the edges of mine.

Add something to the front of the case. Since this is for a boy I kept it simple, but you could really go crazy, add a picture, etc.

Slide into case. Done.

Now that great dvd or cd full of pictures has a cute home!
