Fingerprint Keychains

With this easy keychain, mom can carry a little piece of you with her everywhere she goes. Just use Sculpey clay (any favorite color is great), use a cookie cutter to make the heart shape, and then press a finger print in the middle. Poke a hole in the clay before baking in the oven.

Cupcake Flowers

Give mom some flowers that will last and make her smile for the whole year round. All you need is cupcake wrappers and some colorful straws. Use a hole puncher to make a hole into the cupcake wrappers to then carefully slide into the straw. The fun part is getting to form the wrappers which ever way you want to make it look like a carnation. Once the shape is formed, glue the wrappers onto the straw and fix the form to get your desired design.
