Best Gift for Mother’s Day--DVD Slideshow

Mother’s Day this year is 2 days near. Are you engaged in grabbing a last-minute gift for mom? Here I would love to introduce a simple but special craft for the holiday - creating a multimedia DVD with PowerPoint.

A DVD slideshow that consists of special photos of mom and you, a poem you wrote for her, music of mom’s favorite, even old video montages of the family memory, that motioned by dynamic animations and wipes, that is to burn to disc and share on a large home theatre via a video projector or DVD player, can be accomplished in 5 minutes via MS PowerPoint and Moyea PPT to DVD Burner.

DIY Your Very Mother’s Day DVD Slideshow

All the project could be done in 5 simple steps within 5 minutes. You simply follow the guide below:

Step 1: Set the theme of your Mother’s Day PowerPoint presentation

Theme means the template you’ll use in PowerPoint. A plain theme Looking for a matching background or template for Mother’s Day? Click here to get a free one.

Step 2: Stuff the slides with a poem, phrases, photos of you and mom
Give a title to your presentation. You can type a poem for mom in the text box, and insert some quality photos that are relevant. Note that you’d better compress image file size before insertion for a small size and use big fonts as possible.

Step 3: Add in music, movie clips of your mom’s type
When you were young, you listened to mom to fall asleep in the cradle. Mom’s voice is soft and sweet as fresh cream. You can add a tender song or one of your mother’s favorite tracks as background music. You can also crop an old family video and insert a clip for a special touch.

Step 4: Select animations, wipes for the slides
Animations and wipes make the motion of your Mother’s Day PowerPoint presentation. So add some to make it move naturally. Too many effects may spoil your project.

Step 5: Burn the PowerPoint Presentation onto DVD
Once you complete the PowerPoint presentation for Mother’s Day, you simply convert it to DVD and burn to a disc with Moyea PPT to DVD Burner. Download and Install the conversion app. Import your presentation and convert it to DVD. See this tutorial for details.

When you get the DVD disc with the Mother’s Day PowerPoint project, you can pack it and give to your mom on that great day. Your mom will be surprised at the special gift. Wish you a happy Mother’s Day!
