free printable mother's day card & last minute bouquet

5.04.2011


















If you're looking for a last minute mother's day card and gift idea, you've found the right place. Show Mom you love her with this cute bouquet of tissue paper flower pom-poms.

First, you'll want to download the FREE Mother's Day card here {right click to download}. This card is for personal use only and may not be resold. Print out the Card and right a sentimental message inside. The pdf includes four different pages. One has a blank card with just flowers, one says "to my GRANDMOTHER", one says "to my MOTHER", and the last one says "to my MUM". Print which ever page you like.

Then, you will need to make the tissue paper flowers, but not finish them. (That's what your Mom gets to do).

I used the tutorial from Martha Stewart and just changed a few things.

Instructions:
1. Stack four pieces of tissue paper on top of eachother.
2. Cut out 10x5" rectangles.
3. Make 3/8-inch-wide accordion folds.
4. Wrap twisty tie around center.
5. Cut ends of tissue paper to be either rounded or pointy.

This is what your tissue paper flower should look like when you send it in the mail. You will want to mail it flat.





Then, print out this tutorial card here {right click to download}. Which is also FREE and for personal use only. Put the tutorial card in the envelope, along with the tissue paper flowers and FREE card!


Now you have an easy, quick last minute idea for Mother's Day, and the best part is....well, you decide!

Love the cards! But I can't seem to open the pdf files. It says there is an error? Is it just my computer maybe? Help! Thanks :)

Oooh, I haven't done mother's day with my moms yet since I was sick today, so this is lovely! Thanks so much! That "to my MUM" one cracks me up...since the flowers are mums! Orrr at least mum-like.

It’s a good thing that there is a website like this which offers a free printable mother’s day card. Designing your own mother’s day card or choosing designs online can be a better idea instead of buying in bookstores. Mothers will definitely appreciate it more, if they know that their children exert effort in designing their cards.
