Happy Mother's Day to all our Mum's!
We hope you enjoyed the gifts we made for you and
hope you have an enjoyable day.
Thanks so much for your support, so far, this year.
As well as our 'usual'  writing paper set, we made great
little sun catchers this year.
We started with the laminated pouches cut in half. We traced a heart shape onto the laminate using a permanent marker.
I had some signs ready that said, "Mum, I love you." So we opened the pouches (carefully)  and placed them on, writing side down, so as not to get sprinkles covering the words. Also, making sure to get the message up the right way!!
Next,  we sprinkled on the cellophane sprinkles and some glitter.
Next we closed the pouches, making sure to get the correct sides together!! Yikes!!
Next, we ran them through the Laminator and cut around the outline.We put a hole punch in the top or the side and added some ribbon.

We love how they turned out!!



  1. Cute idea! I'll have to keep that in mind for the future. :)

  2. Aww what a fun idea! My kiddies just did pot plants and portraits of mum (nice and easy for their relief teacher) but I'm definitely storing this idea away for next year!

  3. Adorable! I love how you made it so simple by putting it through the laminator! Great idea!
