Today I made my mom a mother’s day card. I built it off this picture, click through for the blog.
- Construction Paper
First, figure out the design you want. Since it was mother’s day, I did flowers.
Next, cut the appropriate amount of thread for what you want to say. I cut three pieces for “Happy Mother’s Day”. Lay them on the card when it is open to figure out where you will place your message. Make sure the lowest string is halfway down the page.
The trickiest part is the banner. To make the banner, cut triangles and fold over slightly and tape over the thread, but it should still be able to slide along the string. Make sure you write on the triangles beforehand.
Finally place accessories around the message. I used flowers but in the picture above there are balloons. Now use the same accessory to decorate the outside of the card.
This is my finished product!
