Mother's Day Gifts

It's Mummy's day soon. YAY!
Way back at the start of last month I created a couple of gifts for my Mum and my Nan. The kids inspired these two gifts.
(I really hope neither of them are reading this post....lol)

Tracy has all the details on the My2Angels Blog on the thoughts behind these projects and I got to use one of my favourite processes with both......RE-USE, RE-CYCLE, RE-INVENT, RE-NEW, RE-VAMP!

Take one plastic craft take-away container and some pretty goodies from My2Angels shop and this is what you get......

Wow! Love them both. I must admit I am much like Mandy and hoard them in the hopes of maybe using them to create something wonderful and then when I decide to do a clean out out they go!!
