Mother's Day Card Idea


Today I made a cute little 3D card for the kiddos to make for Mother's Day. We used cardstock, construction paper, tissue paper, and glue.

I remember making many projects in elementary school out of this scrunched up tissue paper process. I always thought it looked so cool.

The process is simple. You take little scraps of tissue paper (about 1 inch size) and crumple them into little tiny balls. Then you glue. That's it.


I started by making the line down with glue for the stem of the flower. Then I covered that with the little green tissue balls. Next, I added the green construction paper leaves left over from our last project. I outlined the leaves in glue and added the tissue paper here. Then I drew the flower center and then the petals one by one.
This makes a sweet flower for the front of the card to give to mom or grandma on Mother's Day. It would also be cute to do different designs such as a butterfly, heart, or the letters M-O-M.

  1. Very cute! I remember making tissue paper cards like that for my mom back in elementary school. Maybe I'll make one for her this year to see if she remembers. ;-)

  6. Hi! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects
    as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an
    email. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!
