A Memorable Mother's Day Craft Project

A new way to display your favorite family photos

This photo-collage vase is an easy-to-make gift or centerpiece for occasions such as birthdays, weddings and baby showers. Here, we chose a Mother's Day theme using a photo of a mother and child, a ribbon with diaper pin accent and the word "Mother" stamped on the bottle with alphabet stamps and colored stamping powder. You can use any favorite color or black-and-white photo and change it to a tinted halftone for an added effect, as shown here. Add the recipient's favorite flower, and surprise her on her special day.
