Step 1: The card (in-home or out-of-home children)

we will start off by making an inexpensive but meaningful gift.

everyone gets cards for special occasions, but how many of those cards are hand-made?
moms love to get gifts and relaxation but it will melt their heart when you take the time to make a card for them yourself instead of just going and buying one.

Step 2: Supplies

paper (something stiffer)
pen or pencil

Step 3: The making

Picture of the making
first measure the envelope and cut the paper down to size to fit in it when you fold it in half.
now you can decorate the inside and outside as you want, write something she will keep forever.
now fold it up and put it in the envelope and label it Mom (obviously) make it as simple or fancy as you think appropriate!

and the first step is completed!

Step 4: The breakfast in bed (child-at-home)

sorry i copied this from my mac to my PC and that happened to a couple of the other things, i must have overlooked the salt. thanks for pointing that out.
While the rest of this is original, I'd strongly suggest that you acknowledge the source for the FT recipe (previous comment removed as not needed) L Don't you love the ambiguity of "(removed by author or community request)"? Why not just "(removed)...

my grandma made this recipe. its from my moms computer (the mac) and she e-mailed it to me (the PC) and that is why i had the typo because it converted bad.
All the pictures and the textCopyright Kathy Maister © 2006-2008 are exactly the same as those on (unless your grandmother is Kathy Maister?)

i goth the photos from a website i found on google but that recipe is original! i don't know where the copyright is
This web site? The text is exactly the same including the punctuation marks - admit you copied the lot eh?
I'm suggesting that you post that as a link to a recipe for French Toast, rather than have it appear as something you did?

Lemonie on the defensive! High five!
where are the copyrights? i cant find them

okay I'm going to resolve this right now, i went to google to get pictures for this instructable, i used my grandmother's recipe BUT my grandma (for all i know) could have gotten this recipe from that cook. i will acknowledge that cook but I was under the impression that this recipe was my grandmother's

this looks legit to me, I'm studying to be a lawyer.

hey these are some pretty good ideas. but what would you suggest for a gift?
shiboohi (author)  hondabot315 years ago
I don't think that should be up to me. after all she is YOUR mom and you know what she likes. :)
