Mother’s Day DIYs

Mother’s Day is this weekend! Make something your mom will love. Here are a few ideas for some simple DIYs you can make to show her your love!

Bath Salts 

Who doesn’t enjoy a relaxing bath? Spoil your mom this Mother’s Day with some homemade bath salts in her favorite scent! Bath salts are simple to make and easy to customize. Wholehearted Eats shares a simple bath salt recipe with endless possibilities of scents and add-ins. 

Start with 3 cups of Epsom Salts, ½ cup of baking soda, and 1 cup of sea salt (coarse or fine). Mix in a few drops of essential oils and different dried flowers or blossoms to give your salt fragrance and texture. Some of the most popular scents include lavender, eucalyptus, rosemary, or bergamot but you can mix and match any scents to create something totally unique. For example: lemon, orange, and thyme for energy, eucalyptus and peppermint for clear breathing, and lemon and rosemary for a clear mind.

Package your homemade salts in Stand Up Pouches to keep them fresh. Here at ClearBags, we have a variety of different sizes and styles. Some of our favorites include the Apothecary Jar Shaped Pouches (available with a clear or frosted front), Clamp Lid Jar Shaped Pouches (available in small, medium, and large sizes), and our new Stand Up Zipper Pouches with a Vertical Window (available in matte black and kraft for a classy look). But the possibilities don’t end there! We also have themed and eco-friendly options! 

Another creative option is to use gusset bags. These crystal clear bags have an extra seam to hold a generous amount of salts and can be easily tied with bows, ribbons, twine, and more! Some of our customer favorites include standard gusset bags (like GB12), flat bottom gusset bags (like FG7), and Eco-friendly gusset bags (like CSG4). 

Homemade Cards

Celebrate the moms and mother figures in your life by making homemade cards! There are so many tutorials online these days (like these Handmade Pop Up Cards by Craft Nifty Creations, Flip Out Fun Fold Cards by Creating with Kristina, or Rainbow Waterfall Greeting Cards by Crafts and Kutir) that can walk you step-by-step through how to make cute and creative cards!

Our Crystal Clear Card Jackets come in standard card sizes so your handmade card will stay safe and protected while still letting it be seen! The Crystal Clear Flap Bags also provide protection for intricate cards that your mom is sure to love! 

For a gift that keeps on giving, you can make sets of your handmade cards that they can use in the future! These personalized card sets can be packaged in a variety of different Stationary Packaging we have available. Options include: clear boxes, colored box bottoms with clear box tops or slipcovers, or flap seal bags. 

Artisan Chocolates 

Sweeten your mom’s day by making your own Artisan Chocolates! Making chocolates can be an easy and fun way to make a delicious treat. Whether your mom likes mint, fruit, nuts, or sprinkles in her chocolate, you can make what she likes best. ChefSteps created a step by step video on how you can make artisanal chocolate at home. 

Our Artisan Candy Boxes come with specially designed thermoformed trays in square, round, and heart shapes and come with outer boxes in clear, kraft, black kraft, and white kraft (coming soon!) options. 

Wax Melts 

A dual purpose for the Candy Sets are to make your own Wax Melts! Because the trays can withstand temperatures up to 149 degrees Fahrenheit, you can use them to create and pour fragrant wax in fun shapes. The Armitage Candle Company created a useful guide on how to create your own wax melts that includes the perfect temperature and some tips for pouring.
