{Mother’s Day Cards…with the kids}

I love handmade cards…espcially ones my kids make.  Since Mother’s day is right around the corner, my kiddies and I had a crafty afternoon making these cards for their grandmas.  I have seen flowers made from cupcake liners and thought this would be a perfect place to make and use them!

I am sharing this today on Elmer’s new Facebook CRAFT IT! Community.  Elmer’s has set up a great place for crafters to share their projects & tutorials with others!

Elmer’s also has a Craft It! Club where you can sign up for special offers & newsletters about craft products.

Supplies you need:

-Cute scrapbook paper (sized 8.5 x 11)

-Paper cutter/scissors

-Elmer’s Glue Spots or Dot Runner (I LOVE these, espcially the dot runner)

-My free mother’s day wordart download (below)

-Cupcake liners

Elmer’s Decorative Masking Tape


How to make :

We started with a regular 8.5 x 11 sized scrapbook page & folded it in half to make the card.  (it’s a big one:)  We then covered the front of the card with another piece of colored paper sized 4.5 x 7.5 inches.  I used a photo corner punch to make the rounded corners.

To make the flowers, fold the cupcake liners in either 1/2 or 1/4.  We used 3 halves for the small liners & 4  (1/4 pieces) for the big liners.  The trick was fluffing the paper after we glued them down…definitely fluff!  Then add a colorful button in the center.  You could also add a photo in the center:)

Using the decorative Masking tape, make your stem and tape down your cut out word art.  I LOVE this decorative tape….I {heart} the gingham pattern}

We cut out green leaves to add to our flower.


The kiddos were pretty darn proud of their cute cards…they really did it on their own after I showed them one!  The dot runner & glue dots made it a cinch!

Check out my post coming up next Monday…I have a little goodie for you that you can add to these cute Mother’s Day cards!
