Steps in Creating the Handmade Mother's Day Card Craft
Create a really cute DIY Mother’s Day card by following these 8 easy steps!
Step 1 Choose a piece of colored paper for the background. It can be your mom’s favorite color! Then, prepare a green colored paper, and cut it into 3 thin strips. It will be the flower’s stem. Arrange these green paper strips with one end of each strip placed together, so they look like a letter V with an extra line in the middle. Glue them together in your chosen background.
Step 2 Choose a color for the bud on the inner part of our tulips. For this, we used light pink! Cut into 2x2 inches square, and make 3 pieces. Then, fold it in half and cut it into a half-circle, with a slightly pointed top. Open it up, and now you have a flower bud!
Step 3 Glue a flower bud on the end of each stem. Then, choose another color for the outer petal of your flower craft. We used red for this one, but you can choose a different color if you like! Just repeat step 2, but this time make 6 pieces of the pointed half-circle.
Step 4 Keep this closed and attach 2 pieces on each side of the flower bud, leaving a V-shaped space in the middle. Do this for all 3 flowers. The flaps of the folded petal give off a 3d effect to the lovely tulips!
Step 5 For the flower pot, you can choose a piece of yellow or light brown paper. Make sure the color is light enough for you to write on it later. Next, fold the paper into two and draw a flower pot using a pencil. Once you are sure it is big enough, cut out the flower pot! You’ll have 2 flower pots of the same size now.
Step 6 Glue together the upper part of the 2 flower pots. Be sure to only add glue on the upper part of the pot, so you can still open the lower part. You will write your message here later!
Step 7 Now, add glue to the back of one of the pots to attach it to the flowers! Paste it at the bottom part of your handmade card. Then, cut out some small green leaves for your tulip flowers! Lastly, use a marker to design your flower pot! You can simply add slant lines on the glued top part of the pot, just like what I did!
Step 8 This is a very special step in making your handmade Mother's Day card craft - writing up a simple message for your mom! Use the marker to write a short message inside the flower pot. It can be a simple “Happy Mother’s Day!”, “I love you, Mom!”, or “You are lovely like these flowers!”. On the outer part of the pot, you can write “Mom”, “To mommy”, “Mama”, or to whoever you want to give these flowers to. Now you’re all done!
See how simple and easy it is? Your preschooler will surely have fun doing this for his mom, while practicing his fine motor skills through folding, cutting, drawing, writing, and gluing together this cute DIY card!
You can also use this card for other occasions like Valentine's Day, birthdays, grandparents' day, or on any day actually! Even without special occasions, show your love and appreciation to your mom or your loved ones by giving them this cute handmade card!
