Altered Mother Quote Box

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. This is the Mother's Day gift that I made for my Mum. After much thought, I decided on altering a little 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" box and made little tab cards for inside that hold special quotes on being a Mother. I'm happy with how it turned out and I think Mum will really like it. :)

These are cards one and two, I unfolded the first card so you could read the quote by Helen Steiner Rice, it's really nice. Just click on the pics for a larger view.

Cards three and four

Cards five and six

Cards seven and eight

Cards nine and ten

Cards eleven and twelve

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
