If you’ve got a prolific little artist in your house like me, then you’ve probably exhausted all the creative ways to turn their artwork into gifts for the grandparents. Or maybe you’re looking to start?
I’m so excited about these discoveries that I’m sure will make any grandmother swoon this Mother’s Day.
I’m already in love with artist Andie Marie’s embroidered hand prints that are featured in our Mother’s Day Gift Guide, but this talented mama of 3 will also take your kids art and turn it into a needlework masterpiece (above). What a lovely way to preserve your kiddo’s creations beyond just framing them.
This past Christmas, my oldest drew a picture of all of my kids and jewelry artisan Mia van Beek whipped it into a cool customized keychain
for my husband. You can send her a scan of your kid’s masterpiece and
she’ll transform it into a beautiful necklace (in silver or gold). I can
say first hand that the detail is amazing. You can also see what she
did with a pair of baby footprints in our Mother’s Day Gift Guide.
You can’t go wrong with stationery, particularly when it features your kids’ drawings. Our friends at Red Stamp will create custom kid-designed stationery
including flat cards or folding cards, that goes beyond just the basic
printing the art on a card. Think designer stationery by your kids.
One more option that’s great if you want something super affordable: Scan your kids’ flat artwork and make a photo book
out of it. Shutterfly does a great job with theirs and the prices start
just around $10. It’s also smart if you have multiple grandmas to
delight next week–just make more copies!
