"Delightful" Mother's Day Gifts

Authentique Paper and May Arts are teaming up this week to bring you tons of Mother's Day themed inspiration!

After you check out the projects created here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the May Arts blog to find out what the talented members of the May Arts Design Team have come up with.

This week's theme is Mother's Day. With the holiday quickly approaching, it's nice to get ideas on what to give to Mom. Cards are a given, if you are a paper crafter, more than likely, you always tend to make your own cards rather than buy them, right?

Once you have the perfect gift, what about gift wrap to match the lovely card that you made? Yes, you can use paper & ribbons for that also!

I wrapped my little gift with paper from the "Delightful" collection and then added some net ribbon. I also made some little roses to match. I thought they would add something a little different than the typical bow on top.

I made my little card based on the sketch for our April Sketch Challenge! Have you played along yet? If not, make sure you check it out! You have a little over a week left to get entries in!

Make sure you stop and visit us as well as our friends over at May Arts each day this week, we've got 3 spools of lovely May Arts Twine & an Authentique Paper Prize pack to give away! Also, make sure you stop by the May Arts Facebook Page and tell them that Authentique Paper sent you!

With that said, we do have a winner from last week's giveaway...


Beautiful album! The colors in Carefree are lovely.

Please send an e-mail with your mailing address to contests@authentiquepaper.com with "Maya Road Week Prize Winner" in the subject line and we will get that prize pack out to you!
