How to Make This DIY Mother's Day Card
First, choose a base color for your Mother's Day card. We choose a pretty, bright yellow.
Then trace out several hears from an assortment of colored construction paper. We used heart shaped cookie cutters to trace our heart shapes.
But you can also grab our free printable heart templates if you'd rather use those. They're perfect for projects like this.
Now you can cut out all of your colored hearts. These will be your flowers.
Decorate the hearts with your markers. You can add fun stripes, polka dots or any other designs you think will look pretty.
Play around with your hearts to see how the would look in a flower arrangement. You want to arrange them into a bouquet onto the front of your card.
Once you are happy with an arrangement, you can start to glue them down.
We suggest folding your hearts in half first to add extra dimension.
Using your markers again, draw stems for your flowers and finish off with a pretty bow.
Now you can add your Mother's day message on the bottom. Use a pencil for a test run, before tracing your message with a marker.
We simply wrote "Happy Mother's Day." But you can write whatever you think your mother would love to hear most!
What if we don't have all of these materials?! Can you post a way we can do it differently?! Thank you.
