Love Knots Cookies Recipe

Charles asks…

Christmas Gift for my Mom Please Help:)?

I really have no Money I’m 13 I want to make her something really special that she will like.

LoveKnots answers:

Make a laminated bookmark: find pictures or photos that she would like – animals, sports, flowers, hearts, pictures of family or you two – it can be a few small pics or just one, glue it to construction paper (you can make it two-sided), make sure you know how wide you want it to be before you start with the glue, then take it to Staples/Office Max, Office Depot or a store like that and get it laminated, then cut it. After hole-punch the top and put a ribbon or twine of some kind through the hole and tie it in a knot.

Make a ‘love jar’ and fill it with origami hearts, flowers and slips of paper with notes of appreciation written on them or ‘I love you’ written in different languages (on the back write which language it is).

Sandra asks…

good Mothers day gift, help?

Mothers day is less than a week away and i need a good gift, i’m on a low budget as i am only 15 but i want to get something good, what should i get?

LoveKnots answers:

Make a laminated bookmark: find pictures of the two of you or pictures she would like – it can be a few small pics or just one. Cut the construction paper to the size you want and start gluing the pictures on, then take it to Staples/Office Max, Office Depot or a store like that and get it laminated, then cut it. After hole-punch the top and put a ribbon or twine of some kind through the hole and tie it in a knot. You can even skip laminating it.

Make a ‘love jar’ and fill it with origami hearts, flowers and slips of paper with notes of appreciation written on them or ‘I love you’ written in different languages (on the back write which language it is).
