Members Make Another Great Gift For Mom


Lianna with her finished project.

Members this week are creating special gifts for Mother’s Day. Wednesday they worked on The Wheel of Affection, which is a unique way to express all the ways moms are the best. Below are the instructions on how to create your own.

  • Card stock
  • Decorative Scissors
  • Craft knife
  • Paper fastener
  • Glue
  • Plate


  1. Trace around a small plate onto colored card stock and cut out the  circle. Using this circle as a guide, cut out 3 more (try to use different colors), each one slightly larger than the previous one. You can trim the  circles with decorative scissors, if you like. Glue together the 2 smallest circles and the 2 largest circles to create 2 double-thick  wheels.
  1. Use a craft knife to cut a small window in the smaller wheel, then write the beginning of a message such as “Hey Mom, you are…:” above the window. Using a marker or colored pencil you can write phrases      such as “amazing,” “wonderful,” “the greatest thing” (they should be the size of the window or smaller).

Using newspapers or magazines, you can also snip complimentary words and phrases to complete your message.

  1. Poke a hole through the center of each wheel and attach them with a paper fastener. Use a glue stick to attach the cutouts to the larger wheel  through the window, gluing the edges down well and spacing them so that   only one word can be seen at a time. Finally, decorate the top wheel with      more Mother’s Day greetings and messages.
