Mom will love this Pocket Mirror for her purse or pocket especially when it is made by one of her kids. While you are making one for her, make one for yourself too.
Trivia: Most mirrors are made by coating a piece of glass with a layer of metal. The glass provides the smooth surface necessary for good reflection and protects the metal from becoming scratched and tarnished.
