Total Time 1 hour

Make a sweet card for Mom out of a simple paper plate. She will love you for it! Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to create beautiful crafts and homemade cards just for Mom! Treat her to special recipes and bond with printable activities as well.

What you'll need

  • Paper plate
  • Construction paper: pink, yellow, purple, green, light blue
  • Black marker
  • Pen or pencil
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Pattern
Helpful Tip:

Use plain paper plates – the paper will not stick as well to plates with a waxy coating. Buy a package of paper plates at the dollar store to use just for craft projects. Keep plenty of construction paper on hand for impromptu projects.

How to make it

  1. Fold paper plate in half. Fold a sheet of light blue construction paper in half and place folded paper plate on to the paper. Trace around the plate and set aside. (See photo.)

  2. Print out flower pattern. Trace pattern onto yellow, pink, and purple construction paper. Cut out flowers. Cut 3 strips of green paper, ½" x 4". (See photo.)

  3. Glue stems and flowers to the folded paper plate. Trim stems. (See photo.)

  4. Use black marker to write "m o m" on the flowers, one letter on each flower.  (See photo.)

  5. Take the folded blue paper with the paper plate outline and draw a curvy line along the inside of the curved edge. (See photo.)

  6. Cut out the curvy piece, cutting through the folded paper, creating two identical pieces. (See photo.)

  7. Glue the blue curvy pieces to the outside of the front of the card and the bottom of the inside of the card. Let everything dry. (See photos 1, 2.)
