Mother’s Day Homemade Card

I love to spoil my mother on Mother’s Day. Normally I buy her flowers, chocolate and/or jewelry. But this year, I decided to do something different and personal. Since I love making things with my hands, I made her a homemade card from scratch, and best of all it didn’t cost me one cent! Not only is this card free, it’s personal and will make my mother smile.

Video Instructions 


1) decorative Card Stock

2) printer/construction paper

3) glue/tape

4) “Happy Mother’s Day photoshop text graphic (optional)

5) tissue paper


1) Decide layout of the card to be horizontal or vertical. I chose vertical because it’s different from regualar vertical cards.

7) Give  it to Mom!


* The goal of this card is to spend very little or nothing at all on it. In a card store, you would spend about $2.00-$3.00. But by coming up with creative ways to reuse paper and glue, you will save that money for other crafting materials in the future. Enjoy!
