DIY “I Love You Mom” in a Bag

I love you mom Who needs a fun DIY idea for Mother’s Day? Last week I started making several little gifts for my mom – a sugar body scrub, bubble bath, wrapped candles. I wasn’t sure how to package them until I remembered my mom is always in need of a bag.

So I dressed up a canvas tote, added some magazines, snacks and pretty polish. And, voila –

“I Love You Mom!” in a bag!

My bubble bath recipe ended up be a total dud – no bubbles but it smelled heavenly. So I’m still on the search for a good home recipe if you have one.

Wrapping candles turned out to be an excellent way to pass some TV watching time. I’ll share more how-to info later this week.

Happy Monday!
