Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, which is exciting. My sister should have had her little baby by then, so it will be a very special Mother’s Day.
To celebrate Mother’s Day, LuLu & I made some cute cards for my Mum & Grandmother (her Ninna & Great Nin).
We just used a sheet of A4 sparkly glitter card, but you could make this craft smaller for a card.
Our card is a bit more like a poster to hang on the fridge and wall!
It is a card that also gives the lovely ladies in our lives a special bouquet of flowers!
This craft is very simple and you only need a few basics things and the main item you probably have in your pantry!
You will need;
- Cupcake/patty pan liners.
- A piece of paper or card. (Any size you like, a plain card or an A4 sheet)
- Green pipe cleaners, paint or felt for the stems.
- Glitter or buttons or any other embellishments you would like to decorate the centre of the flowers with.
- An extra piece of paper to add a message. (optional)
- Pens, markers, crayons etc.
- A magnet if you want to make it hangable on a fridge.
- Pick out your cupcake liners and flatten them, LuLu loved doing this!
Lay out your design on the piece of card. This is the part where if you want to trim the flowers with scissors, you can now. Laying it out is helpful so this way you can plan how they will look and they will fit. LuLu picked the colours of the flowers and I stacked them together, while we were doing this craft we were going over our colours and also talking about patterns (dotty, swirly etc)
Glue your flowers together and then to the card, I found glue stick wouldn’t work and we used craft glue.
Embellish the middle of the flowers with glitter or anything you find pretty. We of coursed used glitter – because glitter is always necessary according to LuLu.
Attach stems, we used green pipe cleaners & hot glue (I did that). I find pipe cleaners wont stick with regular craft glue. But painting, drawing or even using a felt stem would work as well. Work with what you have.
Attach a Mother’s Day message. We attached a small banner to the top and have written a message on the back of the cards. If you wish to attach a magnet, do so to the back of the card. And ta-da a bright and lovely bunch of flowers that will brighten someones day. This card could also work as a birthday card or just a sweet little gift to remind someone you love them!
