What says “you’re special to me” quite like a beautiful bouquet of flowers? How about a homemade bouquet! Mother’s Day is less than a week away and DIY Flower Cards are the perfect way to celebrate mom and to show her just how much she means to you. Handwritten cards are always a wonderful gesture and writing them on pretty paper flowers make them that much more meaningful. The tutorial is simple and the sentiment is sweet. Plus, these flowers stay fresh and hold their color all year ’round.
Follow along and learn how to make your very own bouquet of flower cards for Mother’s Day!
What You Need
- 1 presentation board (11″x 14″ – you could also use thick paper)
- Craft knife
- Paint brushes
- Your favorite colored paints
Grab your presentation board (or paper) and use your pencil to draw three large flowers. Nothing in nature is perfect, so don’t fret about too precise. The final bouquet will also have more character if the flowers look unique from each other, so mix it up with several different kinds of blooms!
Once drawn, cut your flowers out with scissors.
Now it’s time paint! Give life to your flowers with your (or your mom’s!) favorite colors. Again, petals aren’t perfect, so use that to your creative advantage. Once your flowers look how you want them to, sit them aside and let dry.
Once completely dry, flip your flower over so that the blank side is facing you and write a special note to your mom.
And that’s that! I made these with Mother’s Day in mind, but honestly they would be a lovely gift for any occasion, any time of year. Just tweak the colors and the varieties of flowers according to the season or holiday.
Happiest of Mother’s Days everyone!
