For the coming Mother's Day treat your mother like a valentine and send her a series of micro love-letters assembled together in a mini book she can carry around in her bag. I am sure your mother will treasure the handcrafted gift as well as the heartfelt messages you've included inside.

  2. Cut the stamped tags out with precision scissors. Tip - Tilt your scissors in 30 degrees away from the cardstock and turn your cardstock rather than the scissors for a more precise and controlled cut.

  3. Gather all your journaling tags in a way that appeals to you. Play with different colors and sizes for an added visual interest. Punch a hole through all the tags to insure an even placement. Make sure they are all positioned correctly, so they won't tear from the punch.

  4. Write 10 micro love letters, each enumerating a reason why you love your mom. Write down memories both from your childhood and the present time. You can also include tiny punched out pictures of you and your mom together from various times and stick them on the back of the tags.
