Show your love with a simple-to-craft handmade greeting (for Mother’s Day or any day) that boasts the 3-D artistic appeal of high-end cards for pennies a piece!
*What you’ll need: *
Two 2” x 10” rectangles of recycled gift wrap or scrapbook paper
Optional: Two 2 1/2" x 10" rectangles of tissue paper
1 piece of cardstock (6" x 10" or larger) folded in half
1 green marker
2 leaves cut from more recycled gift wrap or scrap paper and folded in half
To do: Start by accordion-folding the two pieces of gift wrap or scrapbook paper. Then fan them out and tape them together to make a flower. (Optional: For a double layer of petals, fold the two pieces of tissue paper in the same way and tape them together. Then layer the tissue paper florette under the other one and attach them together with hot glue.) Next, use a dab of hot glue to attach the flower to the front of the folded piece of cardstock. Then glue the button to the center. Use the marker to draw on a stem and glue the paper leaves in place.
