Nothing says "I love you" like a handmade card, especially for Mother's Day. With some simple supplies that you likely already have around the house, you can stitch a card that's totally one-of-a-kind.

Here's some great news: using real flowers as cake decor doesn't require professional-level skill. In fact, fresh blooms can be way easier than fiddling with the sugar-based variety. Before you start trimming stems or snacking on petal scraps though, there are a few considerations to keep in mind.
While the thought of chomping on a flower petal can seem kind of unreal, it's totally not. Edible flower petals are a major game-changer for cake decorating, and when they're coated in sugar and candied, the flavor is next-level.

Gift tags are a great way to let kids put a handmade touch on their Mother's Day present. (Not to mention they save you a trip to the store.) But don't reserve this project for once a year — the whole fam can make a bunch to keep on hand for graduations, birthdays and holidays, so they're always ready for a special occasion!
