Great Mother's Day Ideas from Martha

Once again, Martha has not left me disappointed!  I received my latest copy of Martha Stewart Living earlier this week and I found some really cute ideas for Mother's Day.
The ones that I'm going to share are the tote bag's that she shared on page 80 (for those of you who also get this lovely magazine)
Here's the first idea!  How cute is this?!  You use iron-on transfers and download the letter from Martha's site and then take some fake flower blooms and attach them to the bag next to the letter.  For a full tutorial, go here.

And how stinkin' cute are these:

Again, she used iron-on transfers and attached them to tote bags.  For a full tutorial, go here.

These two are the same ideas but iron-on different surfaces.  For the bag tutorial, go here.  For the journal tutorial, go here.

This isn't Martha, but it does involve Iron-On transfers and what I think would be neat ideas for a Mother's Day gift.  Do you know how to make pillows?  Or, do you know where to find some pillow covers that your mother would love?  Then you could do these awesome pillows that I found when I went to this amazing blog: Lemontree Creations (once you go here, forget I told you about it because I plan on featuring them on an upcoming Magnificent Monday post!)

I hope that these ideas helped spark the creative genius within yourselves and that you come up with (or use one of these) to show your mom love on Mother's Day!


  1. Hey! Love this post :). For real though, that first bag in the first picture is TO DIE FOR! I love the shape and size. Hmm, hopefully Matt reads your blog for mother's day ideas :)

  2. :) Thanks Patrice! I couldn't help but to include those pillows from Lemontree - they were so cute! Somehow leave my blog up on the computer for Matt to see :)


I love to hear your thoughts - leave me some loving!
