My mom is a huge fan of Twilight and I want to make her a present with Edward and Bella incorporated into something. Any ideas?

Love the idea of being on a mug! My Mom drinks coffee every morning so that would be perfect! Thanks Nos for the idea! I was also thinking of cutting the patterns out with an x-acto knife and taping them on an ornament and spray painting the pattern onto the ornament.

Or you could do the same thing on a candle......without the baking in the oven obviously

Anyway, best of luck with it. Don't forget to post a picture of the results. My parents still prefer receiving home made cards, presents etc and as a parent myself, I love it when my children give me something. Unless its a stomach bug.
