Mom: No single Mother's Day card could possibly express all you mean to your family, but this one comes close.

Kids: At a loss for words? This clever wheel-shaped card lets you tell Mom just how great you think she is.

What you'll need

  • Card stock
  • Pinking shears
  • Craft knife
  • Paper fastener
  • Glue

How to make it

  1. Wheel of Affection - Step 1

    Trace around a small plate onto colored card stock and cut out the circle (ours was about 7� inches across). Using this circle as a guide, cut out 3 more (we used different colors), each one slightly larger than the previous one. Trim the circles with pinking shears, if you like. Glue together the 2 smallest circles and the 2 largest circles to create 2 double-thick wheels.

  2. Wheel of Affection - Step 2

    Use a craft knife (an adult's job) to cut a small window (ours was about � by 2� inches) in the smaller wheel, then write the beginning of a message (such as "To me you are:") above the window. From newspapers or magazines, snip complimentary words and phrases to complete your message, such as "amazing," "wonderful," "the greatest thing" (they should be the size of the window or smaller).

  3. Poke a hole through the center of each wheel and attach them with a paper fastener. Use a glue stick to attach the cutouts to the larger wheel through the window, gluing the edges down well and spacing them so that only one word can be seen at a time. Finally, decorate the top wheel with more Mother's Day greetings and messages.
