Five Ways to Celebrate Mother’s Day

Five Ways to Celebrate Mother’s Day

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to get creative! Who doesn’t love celebrating mom and all of the motherly figures in our lives? After all, she’s the one person who always makes us feel special, and on Mother’s Day, it’s our chance to do the same.

To help kick-start your creativity, we’ve got all kinds of ideas for free, printable Mother’s Day cards, Mother’s Day crafts and Mother’s Day gifts. You can craft them using your PIXMA TS9521C or even your new  Canon IVY. The latest IVY mini photo printers have an instant camera, so you can shoot and print in a snap. Plus, they come in six fun colors so you can choose the one that fits your personality best (be sure and show IVY to mom — she always appreciates things like that!).

Personalize a Greeting Card.

Skip a trip to the store and create your own free, printable Mother’s Day card. Use your imagination to craft a message just for mom, telling her how much she means to you. Then print a personalized 7x10 card using your PIXMA TS9521C. With its built-in printable patterns, this all-in-one printer was created just for savvy crafters like you.

Stumped for words? We’ve got you covered. Use your PIXMA TS9521C to bring our  printable Mother’s Day cards to life,  and show mom some extra special love this year. Make it even more personal by snapping a selfie on your Canon IVY. Print it out on the spot and attach it to the inside of your card with its peel-and-stick paper. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words!

Arrange a Photo Mural.

You don’t need a big wall to make a beautiful mural. You just need a metal surface (may we suggest the refrigerator?) and some sheets of Magnetic Photo Paper MG-101 to create a one-of-a-kind photo display. Print out your favorite family photos and then cover the fridge in memories. Make sure you do it when mom’s away so she comes home to a pleasant surprise.

For something she can keep, print out your favorite shots onto RP-101 Restickable Photo Paper, and transform them into a collage on card stock. She can prop it on her dresser or take it with her to work to cheer up her desk. Another idea: when you get together with mom on Mother’s Day, use your Canon IVY to snap and print a cute selfie of the two of you (perhaps with breakfast in bed?). Have fun embellishing it, together, using the Canon Mini Print App and add colorful stickers, frames, text and funny emojis to make every photo one-of-a-kind.

Print a Bouquet of Pink Carnations.

Flowers are beautiful, but they never last long enough! One solution is to print your own carnations. First, consider what color to use. Remember: pink carnations represent gratitude and love, while red carnations symbolize admiration. Then, print this pattern using your PIXMA TS9521C, frame it and give mom the gift of forever flowers. No time for framing? Print it, cut it out and stick the carnations in your printed Mother’s Day card for an little added surprise she can cherish for years to come.

Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve (or Lapel).

We know it, you know it, now let the world know it: Mom knows best. Download and print this heart-shaped ribbon printable using your ever-versatile PIXMA TS9521C. Then, cut it out, attach it to a safety pin and wear it proudly. Mom will be extra tickled to see you publicly admitting what she already knows!  

Bring Her Breakfast in Bed.

You’ve heard of  cupcake toppers, but what about pancake toppers? Breakfast is, after all, the best meal of the day for sharing a heart-felt message, and with these printable toppers, you can tell mom she’s the “Best Mom Ever” before indulging in some flapjacks. To make it, just print the free  Best Mom Ever topper printable cut it out, attach to a toothpick and stick it in a stack of warm pancakes or her favorite breakfast meal. Start this Mother’s Day out right!
