Steps to Make a Paper Tulip Mother’s Day Card
1. First print off the printable template and cut out the tulip and flower pot. You can get the template emailed to you as a free gift by signing up to our newsletter on the form with the preview of the tulip and flower pot template.
2. Trace the flower pot template on some brown cardstock. You’ll need to trace and cut out two. One for the top and one for the bottom (where you’ll write your message). You can also make the flower pot any color you’d like!
3. Cut out 2 paper tulips for each tulip flower you’d like to add. We made 3 tulips so needed 6 paper tulips in total.
4. Fold the paper tulip in half first.
5. Then fold the two sides in the opposite direction. This will allow the center to pop off the paper. Then glue down the two sides to another paper tulip.
6. Glue the 3 tulips to a 12×12 piece of cardstock. You can also fit everything on a regular sized paper. Glue the 2 flower pots on top of each other also, where the top one is only glued by the brim of the pot.
7. Glue on 3 bright green pipe cleaners for the stems. Cut out 3 leaves and glue these to the side of the pipe cleaners.
8. Add MOM lettering stickers to the front of the flower pot. You can also just write “MOM” on the front with a marker too.
8. Write a special Mother’s day message inside the card or just write, “Happy Mother’s Day!”
We love how simple this card is to make. Kids of all ages can help put it together. They can even draw or decorate the flower pot. Then add a special message or poem inside.
