Mother’s Day Card

To make a flower card – you need some petal/flower shapes, stems, flower pot shape and a blank card. If you don’t have pre cut shapes you can use small cup cake cases or cut out petal shapes from paper/magazines. If you spray your flower shapes with some perfume before using them you will have a perfumed card!

Glue on the flowers and stems. Then glue on the flower pot to cover the end of the stems. You can add detail to the flowers with pencils/felt tips if you wish.

Mothers Day Card

‘Love heart flowers cards’ – This is an easy make for Mother’s Day which is only a couple of weeks away! The flowers and leaves are made by cutting out heart shapes from coloured sugar paper. I don’t cut these out with scissors ; I use paper cutters. Paper cutters or punches can be expensive but if you use them a lot they are soon worth the money spent. It would take me for ever to cut out hearts! The other shapes are squares/rectangles for the vase and thin strips of green paper for the stalks.

Handy tip – if your paper punch begins to get blunt cut a few shapes out of aluminium foil to sharpen it.
