I believe that Mother's Day is right up there with Valentine's Day for best excuses to craft wonderful handmade things and gift them to loved ones.
Surely, if anyone is going to appreciate your time and effort (and just how clever you are) it will be mum, so here is a collection of Mother's day crafts which will hopefully get you inspired:
