Craft Project: Scrubbie Flower Card

An easy card to make your mom for Mother's Day. This is an inexpensive craft to make if you don't have a lot of money to spend on a card. The pot scrubbers only cost $1.00 for 4 in a pack. Maybe the kids could make one for Grandma, too. Just change the poem to grandma instead of mom. Also if there's more than one child you could change all the "I" in the poem to "we."


Approximate Time: 10 minutes


  • colored construction paper or cardstock
  • pot scrubber
  • brad or fastener
  • computer
  • computer paper
  • Elmer's glue
  • scissors (regular and decorative)


First type up the little poem on your computer and print it out. I found this one online. It says:


To make your mother's day fantastic

I made you this flower of plastic.

I give it to you with this special wish.

May it help you scrub each pot and dish.

I want to thank you for all you do.

Happy Mother's Day, I LOVE YOU!

(remove brad and enjoy your kitchen scrubber)

Fold the piece of cardstock in half. This will be your card. Cut out the poem with decorative scissors and glue it on the front of the card. Cut out the stem and leaves for the "flower" on a green piece of paper and glue these onto your card. Push the brad through the middle of the pot scrubber and attach it to the card.


All you have to do is finish the inside of the card with a nice message and give it to mom for Mother's Day.

If this doesn't just scream get in the kitchen, I don't know what does. It is cute but I would be very upset if my children gave me this.

We made this last year for my daughter. Her son made it. She cried it was so pretty. She refused to take the scrubbie off and kept the card intact.

I think it was a wonderful hit.
