Handprint Garland Mother's Day Card



The other day while we were painting, I had my 3 kidlets each put their handprint on pieces of paper 4 times. I knew I wanted to use them for Mother's Day cards for our dear Grandmas, and thought it would be fun to come up with 4 different ways to make fun Mother's Day Cards with handprints
Here is #1. Stay tuned this week to see the other 3 Handprint ideas for Mother's Day!

Supplies:

  • Paint
  • Cardstock
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Hole-puncher
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Marker
Here's what you do:
  1. Stamp your child/children's handprints on the cardstock and cut them out in squares. (You can have each child do one handprint, or 2--however many you'd like!)
  2. Cut out squares of scrapbook paper and glue the handprint on.
  3. Using the hole-puncher, place a couple holes on the tops of each square.
  4. Lace a ribbon through the holes and tie the ribbon on the ends so it can be hung up.
  5. Write Happy Mother's Day on the paper and the names of each child's handprint.
  6. You can put this inside a big envelope and mail it to someone you want to wish a very.....
Happy Mother's Day!
