This is a nice idea for a Mothers Day Card. Take different sized buttons of the same colour. Find some patterned paper in the same colour. Cut out a square of the patterned paper and stick to the front of a card.

Glue a plain piece of coloured paper to write your message e.g. Happy Mother’s Day. Then stick the buttons along the plain band for a pretty decoration. Image found on Pinterest.

#4. Butterfly Hands

Then make a pretty patterned card and stick on this poem along with your butterfly:

This isn’t just a butterfly as you can plainly see.
I made it with my hand which is a part of me.
It comes with lots of love especially to say,
I hope you have a very Happy Mother’s Day!

All you need to make this sweet sunshine card is some pasta, yellow paint, card and markers.

Use a paper plate to hold the yellow paint and you can roll the pasta around in it with a paintbrush to coat the pasta thoroughly.

Make your card with a bright yellow circle for the sun.

Then when the pasta is dry, stick onto the card in a sun shape and write your message and don’t forget the smiley face!

Inspired by Picasso’s Hands print, this idea comes from the Splishsplashsplatterart website.

Then put your hand in paint and press it onto the bottom of the bunch on your card to make it look like the hand is holding the flowers.
