As a busy mum of two kids, I would absolutely love the idea of a late sleep-in and to be spoilt with a personalized breakfast in bed. Unfortunately the reality is that the thought of having crumbs in my bed, or a spilt mug of milo is enough to get me to wake up before the kids, rush downstairs and make my own breakfast.
So here I am, creating what I think would make an ideal breakfast setting for every deserving mother (just not me, okay kids?!). I’ll just take the flowers and have mine at the table thanks!
Happy Mother’s Day.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Flowers for mum
Kassa Clear Transfer Paper
Part One: Foil Adhesives with Kassa Clear Transfer Paper
If you’ve read my previous blogs or seen my Instagram posts, you’ll know how much I love to use foil adhesives to give everyday household items a personal touch. Kassa’s clear transfer paper is so versatile and works on practically any surface, which makes personalizing so easy. As you can see in this blog, I used the Kassa clear transfer paper on the serving tray, mason jar, champagne flute, breakfast plate and even on a paper napkin.
Cut out a piece of Kassa Transfer paper the same size as your foil adhesive or your pre-cut mothers day stickers.
Step Two: Peel off the clear gridlines side of the Transfer tape and stick it over the foil adhesive or sticker. Using a plastic scraper or credit card, scrape the transfer tape to ensure that it is stuck down on to the Mother’s Day adhesive.
Gently remove the backing paper so that only “love” or “Happy Mother’s Day” is stuck to the transfer paper. Be careful as to not touch the sticky side of the word as the oils on your fingertips will affect the adhesiveness.
Carefully place the transfer tape with your cut out on it, on to your object. When you are happy with the positioning, use the scraper or credit card to firmly scrape the letters down. Take a bit more care with curved or round surfaces as the letters can fold on to itself.
Gently peel off the transfer tape to reveal your lettering.
Repeat these steps for all the items you’d like to personalize for Mother’s Day.
Part Two: Using Kassa Liquid Chalk Markers to decorate a chalkboard and card for Mothers’ day
I personally prefer to keep my writing straight, so I always use a ruler or a piece of paper as a guide for my writing. I try to work out where the centre of the board or card is, and that is where the middle of my text will need to be. If I make any errors on chalkboard, all I need to do is use a damp towel and wipe off my marker and start again.
I love using Kassa Liquid Chalk Markers as it is vibrant and juicy. It can stand out on any colored cardstock, including Kraft card.
