What You Need For This Flower Pot Mothers Day Card
1. Start by drawing a flower pot on two pieces of orange cardstock.
2. Using scissors, cut out both of your flower pots.
3. Write “Happy Mother’s Day” on a piece of paper and glue it to one of your flower pots.
3. Draw drops on red cardstock, these will become your flower petals. Cut out your drops, you will need nine for this craft.
4. Fold six of the flower petals in half and leave three unfolded.
5. Add glue on the sides of one of your unfolded flower petals and glue two folded petals on the flower with the folds facing towards each other.
Repeat this step to make two more tulip flowers.
6. Cut out stems from green cardstock.
7. Add glue on the back of your tulips and glue to the stems.
8. Add glue on the back of the stems and glue them to the flower pot without wording on it so the stems are down inside the flower pot.
9. Use a marker to write a personalized message on the bottom of the flower pot card.
10. Put both flower pots together and use a hole punch to punch a hole on each side of the flower pot rim.
10. Cut off a section of ribbon about 25-inches long. Thread the ribbon through the two holes at the top of the flower pot and tie it closed with a bow on the front of the flower pot card.
Your Mother s Day flower pot craft is finished!
When Mom or Grandma receives her card, she’ll have to untie the ribbon to open up the card and reveal the personalized message on the inside of the card.
I bet Mom will love it!
