Mother's Day

Cards She’ll Love
  • Your extraordinary mom deserves a card that's equally original. This year, make Mother's Day POP with a 3D card you create yourself. (BTW, it's a lot easier to make than it looks.)
  • Handmade card? Lovely. But here's something even more unexpected: handmade fabric envelopes. They’re super cute, reusable and much more personal than their store-bought cousins. Not to mention, these beauties are a genius way to use up fabric scraps leftover from your latest project.
  • Mama and baby birds are a first sign of spring — and the perfect way to celebrate Mother's Day. This card is fun to customize to your family, and we promise it'll come out great even if you've never watercolored before. Tweet!

Make It For Mom
  • Needle (or thread) painting is a truly artful way to embroider. Here, Jessica shows you how to use this technique to create furlike stitching for your second project, a bear cub design. She also shares tips for making expressive animal features including eyes, ears, a snout and couched mouth.
  • I'm a firm believer that marble makes everything look more elegant. So why not add a touch of the iconic stone to your vanity or bedside table with a little jewelry dish? The gold rim and blush-and-white color combo is a minimalist’s dream. Plus, you'll never waste time hunting around for your rings in the morning again!

  • In case you haven't noticed, this cool speckled stone is totally taking over. These faux-terrazzo earrings are incredibly easy and cheap to make, and final product looks 100 percent gallery-worthy.

  • Move over, chocolate. We're all about the crochet hearts this Valentine's Day. Whip up a bunch using scrap yarn, or just make one for that very special someone. (And then maybe attach it to some chocolate.)
  • Sew
    There's nothing sweeter than baking fun cookies with your little kitchen helper. Unless, of course, you're rocking matching aprons! This reversible option is a cinch to sew, and fits kids who are between ages 3 and 6. If your kiddo is older, don't worry: you just have to add length or width to your pattern and you'll be good to go.
  • Meet Kate and begin class by going over the tools and materials you'll need to get started. Then she discusses all the benefits of knitting socks two at a time.
  • Dive into your first project, a colorful runner that can be used for any occasion. Gudrun shows you how to prepare the batting before assembling the runner from the center out. Finish your project by adding a neat, simple binding using Gudrun's foolproof tips.
  • Bring a little extra sparkle to your look with these gem-studded bobby pins. They're so easy, you'll want to make a few for yourself and a bunch for your besties.

Craft With the Kids!
  • Strange, true and totally adorable: a pincushion that's wearable... and looks like a cake. Your crafting life is now officially sweeter than ever.
  • No cookie cutter kid's art here! This letter art project is the perfect way to get those creative juices flowing: You help them with the basic setup, and then the kids can totally take it from there.

Let’s Brunch!
  • We are 100% here for Belgian waffles. Who could resist that crisp exterior, tender inside and deep pockets for catching maximum syrup? But sadly, these wonders of brunch seem to get a bad wrap for being hard to make. We say, no more! You're one bowl away from waffle stardom.

  • Talk about a dynamic duo! This brunch dish combines flaky, buttery puff pastry with deliciously runny eggs. And we are HERE FOR IT. Plus, this recipe is easy enough to scale up for a crowd at your Easter or Mother’s Day celebrations.
  • These subtly sweet almond scones are delicious on their own, or you can turn them into strawberry shortcakes for an over-the-top brunch treat. Nicki shows how to roast the berries, mix your batter and bake the scones to perfection. Planning ahead? The unbaked scones can be frozen days or weeks in advance.
  • We've never met a doughnut we didn't like. But these delicious babies are baked, gluten-free, AND get their pink color from beets. That makes them basically health food, right?!
Mom deserves the best, so deck out a cake with her favorite (totally real) flowers.
That's So Sweet!
  • At peak season, why mess around with "strawberry-esque" or "strawberry-flavored" recipes when you can treat your taste buds to the real deal? It may take an extra step or two to make these oh-so-authentic beauties, but we have a sneaking suspicion that you'll never use another strawberry cupcake recipe again.

  • It's pretty. It's fun. Best of all, you can eat it. These are just three reasons to make a cupcake bouquet for your next baby shower, bridal shower or birthday bash. Prepare the base in advance, get yourself some buttercream tints to match the party's color scheme, and you're good to go.

  • Vintage birdcages are oh-so-pretty for flower arrangements, party decor and more. But we think they’re extra sweet when turned into cupcakes. Here’s how to make ‘em for your Mama Bird, or anybody else who makes your heart take wing:
  • They're not cupcakes. They're mini cakes. Which means they're soooooo fancy. And thanks to the magic of Russian piping tips, they're easy enough for beginners to whip up.
