Message Box Craft Tutorial - Mothers Day Gift - Free Printable

I was looking through past Mother’s Day ideas and came across this great craft idea by my friend, Cathe Holden.

Cathe and I go way back in blog years. When I first met her, I knew she would be famous someday because she is so darn talented! Well, she sure is well known in the crafting world now. You can find her in Country Living and featured all of the place! I’m so excited for my friend:-)

Cathe did this wonderful Message Box Tutorial for me a long time ago. It’s such a great craft project that I wanted to feature it again.

This sweet DIY Gift Box can be filled with little notes reminding Mom why you love her so much or used for a Teacher Appreciation gift.
