Mother's Day Project

Each year, I have my students create a TIME Magazine for their moms as a Mother's Day gift.  We announce the "Mother-of-the-Year" and inside each issue, the kids write articles about their family, what they appreciate about their mom, etc.  I love this project, but it needed some updating.  Here's a photo of the previous cover:
The students would glue a picture (or draw one!) of their mom on the front.
Here's a photo of the cover I'm using this year:
Now, instead of the TIME Magazine, we are working on Mom's Gazette.  I found this cover on Pinterest, but click HERE for the link to Martha Stewart's site. 

Here are pictures of the inside pages, as well as a direction sheet.  I'm sorry that the pictures are a little dark and fuzzy.  If you wish to print these, I've attached the documents below.  Be warned--sometimes Google Drive changes my font and distorts my documents.  If you know why and can offer a solution, I'd love to hear your suggestions!

Once the pages are complete, I bind them with a binding machine and they are nice and sturdy.  What are your favorite Mother's Day craft ideas/projects?
