Late spring/early summer is such a busy time for celebrating: mother’s and father’s day, graduations, first communions, weddings, and for me – lots of people I know and love have birthdays this time of year! I made this lovely flower card for my mum for mother’s day but you could easily make it for another occasion as well.
You will need: double sided tape, puffy tape, marker (to match your color scheme) pen, needle, thread, button, a rubber stamp for the occasion, colorful paper, and a blank card and envelope.
First, cut out your flower petals. I folded my paper in half and cut out somewhat of a heart shape. You will need 4 petals total.
Tape the petals onto the blank card using your double sided tape.
Then cut out a leaf and tape that underneath the petals, peeking out. I thought just 1 leaf looked good, but it’s up to you!
Next, you’ll want to cut a circle out of paper (different color than your petals) with a small circle drawn in the center. Then, start cutting strips in the circle, stopping at the perimeter of the center circle. Do this around the entire circle.
Now comes the fun part! Sew a litle button right smack in the middle of the circle.
Then one by one, curl each cut out around your circle, do it by hand, or I curled some around a pen, too.
Draw some black lines with a sharpie coming out of the button. Then use some puffy tape to secure this piece in the center of your petals.
Make sure to customize the inside with a stamp or hand-written message. And there you have the cutest flower card!
