Recently I was introduced to Treat Greetings. Treat (by Shutterfly) is a greeting card company where you can create personalized greeting cards that fit your style.
After seeing some of there card designs, I was inspired to make a DIY project for mother's day that could be paired up with a few of there cards. So today I'll be talking a little bit about my experience with Treat and I'll be showing you guys how to make a set of clay trays for mother's day.
To get inspired for the DIY, the first thing I did was go to Treat's website and check out all their cards. I was shock to find so many different card designs that you could alter and personalize to fit your ''needs''. They have all types of cards for different occasions and there card designers are Hallmark, Dwell Studio and Night Owl Paper Goods (just to name a few). They also have a ton of cards, that already have great prints on them like the Mama Grizzly card (that I ended up getting in the first picture).
Personally, I ended up getting three completely different mother's day cards because I wanted to see how each would turn out.
The one above (From Your Little Artist), might be my favorite! Designing the card itself was super easy and I was done in minutes. Basically all I had to do was upload my photos, place them where I wanted them and add my message. I love how it turned out but my photos do not do this card justice. The colors came out super bright and the printing quality (for all of the cards) was excellent.
funny/vintage looking mother's day card. My mom has always been a baker and a lover of vintage things, so this card was perfect for her. On the outside of the card it reads ''Good Moms Let Their Kids Lick The Beaters'' and on the inside it reads '' Great Moms Turn The Mixer Off First''.
Overall, I was extremely happy with each card. All the cards look exactly like there picture online, the card-stock for each card was thick/sturdy and the colors of the cards were really bright. Also the whole process of designing and ordering your cards was easy as well.
When trying to come up with a DIY for this project, I wanted to create something that would be easy to make, customizable and useful. Thats when a set of clay trays pop into my head.
These clay trays make the perfect gift for mother's day because they can be used to hold jewelry, keys, candy, nail polish, paper clips, and anything else you can think of. If you want to learn how to make your own set of trays, read the directions below!
