Mother’s Day is coming up! If you blink, you’ll definitely miss it!
I am so lucky to have 3 beautiful kids and a sweet husband, but I still hate Mother’s Day because I really miss my mom! She died 11 years ago now and Mother’s Day always brings up happy memories of my mom and also some tears that I can’t send her an awesome Grandma gift!
The reason why I love Mother’s Day is because I get a chance to celebrate every woman in my life! I believe that a mother’s love is special, but I also believe that that love is a choice. I believe that being a mother is choosing to put your needs aside on a regular basis and give your love unconditionally to someone else. When I go by that standard, I have so many women in my life to be grateful for! I truely am lucky!
Let’s actually get to the craft!
A few years ago, I made the cut file on the jar picture above. I cut it with my Silhouette Cameo 3 and added it to the jar I found at KMart. Remember when KMart was in business? Anyway, I found a similar one here from Amazon It has a metal lid to keep cookies fresh!
Another option is a big mason jar with a lid –linked here from Amazon- it is so farmhousey and cute!
For this project, I used Oracal 651 in black because it is permanent and won’t come off when it is hand washed (the dishwasher is a bad idea).
The last piece is the cut file that I have for sale in my Etsy shop. I even added a file to give you a Grammy option instead of Grandma if that’s what you call your grandma! I also have a cut file that says World’s Best Mom if you are interested.
Here are some other ideas on how to use the cut file and a picture of the World’s Best Mom cut file too! When you make something with my files, tag me on Instagram! I’d love to see what you’re making!
