printable-MOM-glasses-apieceofrainbowblog

My mom is one of my best friends ever. She is always so open and so supportive. She has the rare wisdom that life is just so much more fun when we allow ourselves to do things that are totally silly and frivolous!

These paper MOM glasses are for you, mom! And for all the lovely-silly-giddy people … you all are the best, really!

Just think about it … what a happy celebration it would be to wear these printable Mom glasses to a Mother’s Day brunch, or on Mom’s birthday, or give it to Mom in the gift pouch for her to wear!

So, would you join me in the fun? =)

These are so easy to make! Just download the templates- 3 downloads at the end of article – print them out, cut, score, and glue. That’s all!

I used [easyazon_link identifier=”B006P1Z59E” locale=”US” tag=”apieceofrainb-20″]this card stock, one of my favorite for paper crafts. [/easyazon_link] I have used it in many fun projects, like these dimensional paper flower lanterns-

Back to the glasses: if you want a more rigid feel to the glasses, print 2 sets, and double them up.

There are two pairs of glasses, one pink, the other blue-green. You can also adjust the colors in Photoshop or Gimp(free)!

And there are two gift pouches, one for Mother’s Day, the other for Mom’s Birthday!

No I won’t spoil the fun with a photo of me wearing these, you just have to try them on yourself! =)

Here are the downloads- Pink glasses, Blue-green glasses, and gift pouches . Each of the glasses has 2 sizes, the smaller ones fit me. Try them and adjust the print scale if you need to.  (If you have trouble downloading, it might be a browser issue, just ask some friends to download and email to you! )
