My family is moving to LA this summer so we are on an ultra-tight budget for the next few months, but we have 3 moms and 3 grandmothers to think about for Mother's Day--what to do?

I got this idea from something my 3 yo daughter did at preschool for Valentine's Day, but reworked it with a photo frame.  It is a frame she painted with a picture of her and a clothespin and magnet on the back so you can clip stuff to the fridge.  I think that they only were about $2 or so each if you only need the basic supplies(a bit more for us cause we needed more paint). Super cute and super fast, and thought I'd share it with all of you!

Here's a picture of the finished product:

and the back with the clip:

OK, now for the tutorial--my first! I am missing some of the steps, 'cause I thought about this after the fact, but I'm sure you can use your imagination.

Supplies (all from Michael's):
wooden picture frame (5 @ $1 each--I don't have a picture of the plain frame, but they were in the wood cutout section, just discard or stash the dowels used to stand them up)
clothes pins ($2)
magnetic strip ($1)
glitter ($1--btw, old spice shakers are great for glitter with little ones!)
picture ($1 for 5 prints from Walgreens)

1. Paint and LIBERALLY apply glitter in colors of your choice (or other decoration), then let dry. I spent 20 minutes after they dried rubbing the frames to get off all the loose glitter!
2. Insert picture into frame

3. Superglue a strip of magnet to clothespin, then clothespin to the back of the frame, let dry.

You're all set!

Thanks for taking a look, hope you find it helpful!

Thanks for the idea, my almost 3 year old niece has just found the excitement and joy of aunties craft room, with Mother's day coming up this is the perfect idea, of course I will have to adapt a bit since I have never seen those frames around here, I'll post what I come up with though.

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.
