Little gifts you can make yourself
View in browser


Hi {firstname},


Less than 2 weeks to Mother's Day! Unless, of course you don't celebrate it on Sunday May 9th this year. In the U.K. and Ireland for instance, it was on March 14 this year, and some other countries celebrate Mother's Day on yet a different date.

But since the second Sunday in May is the designated date in almost 80 countries, you will find lots of ideas for little make-it-yourself gifts in this newsletter. Mother's Day is especially important again this year for Moms who cannot receive visitors because of lockdown rules.


Here is a nice flower made with an egg carton. I painted it blue, but everyone can of course choose the colours and vary the decorations according to their own taste.

In this video, I show a model of flower with two series of petals. I plan to show you other types of flowers in future videos.



You don't have an egg carton? No worry, here is a daisy made with plastic bottle caps. Choose the colours depending on the bottle caps you have.

And if you can, collect bottle caps because there are lots of projects where you can use them!



If you don't have enough bottle caps to make a daisy, you might just have a small plastic bottle, e.g. a water bottle?

With the bottom of a plastic bottle, you can make a pretty flower. This technique also allows for a lot of creativity in decorating the flowers.



Frequently Asked Questions : What are credits ?

There are many free documents on the Animaplates website, and there are also "premium" documents that are available at a small cost.

If you have a Basic or Pro Membership, you can pay for the premium documents with credits instead of money.  Basic Membership includes 20 credits, and Pro Membership includes 40 credits. When you purchase a membership and you use credits, you get a better deal than if you were to pay for the documents individually.

Every time you renew your Basic or Pro Membership, you get 20 or 40 credits that are added to your balance of the previous year. As long as you renew your membership every year, you never loose any credits.

If you exhaust all your credits, you can buy more.

You will find more Frequently Asked Questions in the Help menu.
