Glitter Chipboard Letters
Working one at a time, apply craft glue to the front side of chipboard letters with a one-inch artist's brush (Image 1). Immediately spoon glitter onto wet glue, allowing excess glitter to fall into a bowl (Image 2). Glitter all three letters, then set aside till glue has fully dried.
Create the three panels that make up the banner following dimensions in the diagram below (Image 1). Using a ruler, mark dimensions on the back side of scrapbook paper, then cut out the panels with scissors (Image 2). Use a ribbon spool as a template to mark the paper, then cut out three circles in coordinating scrapbook paper (Image 3). Have children write a message, thank you note or poem for Mom on the back of each panel (Image 4). Sign and date. Tip: For small children who can't write, make an impression of their hand with finger paint or allow them to scribble.
Make Tissue Pinwheels
Cut three pieces of tissue paper into four-inch squares. Fold the pieces accordion style, pressing each fold to create a crease (Image 1). Twist at center and fan out to make a circle (Image 2).
