Mother's Day

For Mother's day yesterday I made these for both my mum and mum-in-law. The MUM card was made using the Cricut design studio and just decorated with flowers and ribbon. The paper mache boxes were painted with watered down PVA glue and then painted with acrylic paint. The flower design is a tissue napkin that has been glued on with the PVA glue. I can't remember where I saw the tip about covering paper mache boxes with PVA before painting, but it's a really good tip as it stops the box absorbing the paint and expanding so the lid no longer fits.
