Your mom gave you the world growing up -- and while you may not be able to repay her gift in kind, you can make her day with something more tactile. This year, skip the drugstore card and craft a symbolic gesture to show her what her many gifts meant to you.
Tissue Paper Posies
A classic Mother's Day move -- but for good reason. Tissue-paper posies will add festive flair to eggs Benedict and fresh-squeezed OJ.
5-by-15-inch sheets of tissue paper
1. Layer 5-by-15-inch sheets of tissue paper, alternating colors. Make 1-inch-wide accordion folds.
2. Wrap 1 end of a pipe cleaner around the center of the folded paper, and twist to secure. Round the edges of the folded paper with scissors.
3. Fan out folds, and gently pull apart each layer of tissue paper to create petals.
